Looking forward to celebrating its 60th anniversary, the NSW Seniors Festival has grown into a huge number of events that now covers a massive 12 days.
For 2018 those days will be Wednesday April 4 to Sunday April 15, and the theme this year is “Let's do more together.”
As described on website seniorsfestival.nsw.gov.au:
“NSW Seniors Festival is the largest festival for seniors in the southern hemisphere, reaching up to 500,000 seniors each year.
“If you are over 60, NSW Seniors Festival gives you the chance to make new friends or get together with old ones at an array of local community events, many which are free or heavily discounted.
“Presented by the Department of Family and Community Services (FACS), NSW Seniors Festival is designed to celebrate the role seniors play and the contributions they make to the NSW community, aligning to the policy objective of inclusive communities.
