Snowflakes in Stanthorpe
July 2 - July 4$30
Queensland’s premiere winter festival held every SECOND year.
Grab your beanies, scarves and mittens and join the fun at Snowflakes in Stanthorpe 2021.
The coolest town in Queensland is gearing up to host thousands of visitors on a winter family holiday with a guaranteed chance of throwing snowballs.
Accommodation fills up quickly so visitors are encouraged to book early.
The main street of Stanthorpe is packed with great entertainers, demonstrations and activities. Rug up and enjoy the on stage performers, seasonal markets and incredible ice sculpture competition. The whole family is invited to join in on the street parade, the bocce rink, the jumping castles, the snowman toss and the whip cracking showcase. Join the lantern parade winding its way to Stanthorpe’s newest icon the Big Thermometer. The finale is the early evening fireworks.
Let it Snow! Join in the fun on at the Stanthorpe Snowgrounds. Entry ticket include a huge range of free activities including the massive snowfield (with under 8’s area), on stage entertainment, fashion parade, movies, giant snowglobes, facepainting, climbing wall, enchanted forest, jumping castles, petting zoo and ‘snow’ much more.
Wander the winter markets, indulge in the international food fest and relax in the local wine and beer marquee. The ice skating rink is available at an extra cost per session. The evening ends with a fireworks spectacular and bonfire.
Head back to the Stanthorpe Snowgrounds for more great activities. The ice skating rink will be open and there will be plenty more snow! There are two choices early on Sunday. For the adventure seekers, the Iceman Challenge will set your heart racing and Frostys Fun Run will ensure your youngest are challenged before hitting the snowfields.
For those who prefer a slower start, and maybe a coffee, the Historic Vehicle and Machinery Display will be ready to show off their shiny motors. The market stalls will be open and all of the childrens activities will be back. On stage entertainment continues all day.
