Nau mai haere mai

The Dunedin Midwinter Carnival is an iconic annual celebration that has developed a loyal public following. The Carnival, one of the most spectacular and accessible community events held in Dunedin, aims to celebrate our distinctive seasons in a creative and positive way.

Our next event is on 8-9 July 2022 – yes two nights instead of one! This is an exciting development and more details will be released soon. Last year’s event was on Saturday 26 June 2021 in the city centre and attracted an estimated audience of 30,000. It was massive and we were fortunate to be able to run at all in these Covid times. This year events will require Covid vaccine passes to operate under the Traffic Light Framework. This will require some changes but as long as we are at Green or Orange light we will be bringing you some winter magic. See our Facebook page for more updates.
