The Snowflakes in Stanthorpe winter festival will take place over three days of winter themed magical days from the 30th June to 2nd July.  A family event that is sure to captivate people of all ages. So, join us in the stunning Granite Belt region as we celebrate all things cool, in the coolest place in Queensland.

The events take place in downtown Stanthorpe and at the Showgrounds -dubbed the Snowgrounds during the winter School holiday break. The region is an awesome destinations so staying on for a few days should be a part of your plan.

Come for a day, stay for a week.


We like long walks on frosty mornings and curling up with a good glass of Granite Belt wine. But we’re mainly a friendly bunch of local volunteers who love Stanthorpe and it’s cool climate. The Snowflakes in Stanthorpe management committee is made up of the following foundation partners:
