3 days of dance events, phenomenal teachers and workshops, the South Island swing competitions and a celebration of the longest night of the year (Winter Solstice!) Dunedin’s Midwinter Swing Festival follows on from last year’s hugely successful Vintage Street Swing Festival.

And hey! If you’re not satisfied with all that there are many more fun activities to keep your bellies warm such as hot swinging jazz music to warm the cool nights away, sumo-suit swing dancing (yes you read that correctly), viewing the night sky (maybe the Aurora Australis), checking out the only Castle in NZ, glow worms, mulled wine, and hot hearty food!

Tickets are very affordable with hosting accommodation in Dunedin available too so stick it in the calendar now, book your flights, and you’ll have something delightful to look forward to when winter arrives!
