The "Creative Queenstown Arts and Crafts Markets" are set in a vibrant colourful arena, where visual and performing arts meld together for the public and visitors to enjoy. We embrace the talents of many artists and crafts persons from around the South Island, some coming from as far as Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin, Invercargill and the West Coast to display and sell their own quality handmade Art and Craft. We pride ourselves in contributing to Queenstown's wonderfully relaxed weekends and being able to provide free local musical entertainment for your enjoyment.

Love these markets as most stalls are individual artisans selling their own creations. This is my Christmas shopping mega as there are lots of bespoke jewellery, clothing and treasures. The music was excellent.

The markets are located centrally at the waterfront easily accessible by foot. In front of all the shops and public facilities. It is a must see event on a Saturday morning. Great to browse through very artistic pieces.

This was a nice smallish market with real handmade stuff. The stallholders were friendly and the prices seemed very reasonable. Great thing to do on a Saturday in Queenstown.
