The Dunedin Midwinter Carnival is an iconic annual celebration that celebrates our distinctive seasons in a creative and uplifting way.

This year’s event is on 8-9 July and located in and around First Church and will feature multiple lantern installations and two spellbinding projections mapped onto this iconic church. In addition we present aerial performance, live music, dance, a children’s lantern procession, food trucks and merry-go-round, and that’s not all! Follow our Facebook page for the latest event info.

Last year’s event was on Saturday 26 June 2021 in the city centre and attracted an estimated audience of 25,000. This year’s event will be smaller with limited ticket sales to maintain safety and an awesome event experience. Don’t miss this beautiful event and if you’re in town to see the All Blacks game on 9 July, you’d be mad not to take the whole family to the Dunedin Midwinter Carnival.
