Snow Week

Fifty tonnes of real snow is descending upon The Prince Consort — and so is an ugly sweater party, poutine and wintry cocktails.

It doesn't snow in Brisbane. Sometimes, if it gets cold enough, the skies can whiten around the Granite Belt; however, that isn't Brissie. For seven days in Fortitude Valley, however, you will be able to surround yourself with the best thing that winter has to offer without leaving the city — and there'll be 50 tonnes of the stuff, in fact.

Yes, all that snow will be real. You'll find it at The Prince Consort as part of the venue's returning Snow Week, and it'll be falling from the sky from Tuesday, June 25–Monday, July 1. The Wickham Street spot is turning into a winter wonderland, because it's that time of year. And, it's hosting a heap of snow-themed festivities to help you make the most of the event.

Fancy a round of Snow (Drag) Queen Bingo? Have an ugly sweater you'd like to bust out at a party dedicated to terrible woollen wares? Fancy pretending you're at a ski resort? They're all options throughout the week. So is attending a shindig dedicated to Canada, to celebrate Canada Day — poutine included — and, for the same occasion, a Shania Twain appreciation party.

Also on offer: nooks to get cosy in, live tunes and DJs, and special food menus to suit the occasion. Even the week's State of Origin viewing is happening in the snow.

Rugging up is recommended, obviously.
