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.

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.

This is on every weekend and is usually worth a look they have a large range of all sorts of knick knacks. There are some pretty talented people out there.

All locally made and at reasonable prices considering it is a bit of a tourist trap in Queenstown. Right there on the waterfront with a spectacular backdrop of the lake and the Remarkables. It will take as long as you want to wander around but...More
