This ski season, things are heating up in Queenstown thanks to the incredible Winter Pride festival. From Friday, August 26 till Sunday, September 4, there'll be comedy, music and special events galore to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community — and you're invited.

On Sunday, September 4, you and your crew can head to a wildly entertaining boozy brunch featuring some of New Zealand's premier drag artists, flowing drinks and delicious food thanks to the team at QT Queenstown. Get ready for a dynamic trio on hosting duties courtesy of Les Femmes (aka Miss Manage, Miss Demeanour and Miss Givings) who'll be bringing their powerhouse vocals, insatiable wit and cheeky humour to the stage.

You'll be dazzled and delighted by their live band as you enjoy Bazaar's beloved marketplace brunch paired with picture-perfect views (and you might even win a prize or two). Tickets to the brunch are $79 which includes food, a glass of prosecco on arrival and entertainment. Don't worry if you want to knock back more than one glass of bubbles, there'll be plenty more to purchase from the bar.

Want to stay longer than just brunch? QT Queenstown is also offering a 'Shantay, You Stay' package that'll help you extend your celebrations in the snow. The package includes special cocktails at the hotel bar Reds, breakfast for two, a recovery kit and more. You just have to make sure you book during the festival period to nab the offer.
