Interactive Experiences

Queenstown:  Village Green  (Sept 4th – 7th)

Located in the central Queenstown Lakes Region, the Village Green, originally the site of the White Star Hotel, a local watering hole that burnt down in the early 70’s, is a popular public space that has slowly developed over the years from a flat gravel carpark with Horne Creek channeled through an underground pipe, to a well used community asset.  The new and improved village green features historical interpretation panels, improved seating, concealed lighting and tree planting.

The Burton High Fives and presenting sponsor, MINI will take over the Village Green from September 4th – 7th with interactive experiences for visitors to Queenstown.  Join us and check out MINI vehicles, photo booth, High Fives info, and more.

Wanaka:  Urban Grind  (Sept 10th – 13th)

Urban Grind is about dropping in, refueling; nothing pretentious. It’s a venue designed around fun, encouraging you to linger, whether it be by the ambient fire in winter, the sunny courtyard in summer or the upstairs lounge bar.  From September 10th – 13th, Urban Grind will transform into the official High Fives Lounge and will be your hub of High Fives activities and information.  Drop in and rub elbows with the pro athletes, interact with our partners, watch the live feed of the competition and don’t forget to stop in nightly for parties from 8pm – 12am featuring NZ’s best DJs.

Cardrona:  On snow  (Sept 10th – 13th)

The Burton High Fives presented by MINI will feature an on-snow sponsor village at the base of the resort near the chairlifts featuring a free Burton hardgoods demo where you can try out the latest gear, and interactive consumer experiences from our partners, MINI and Nokia with cool product demos, giveaways and plenty more fun.
