Seniors Festival

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 free local community events.

NSW Seniors Festival

11-24 March 2024

It's time to celebrate together!

Laugh, sing, dance, learn, explore and above all, celebrate when the NSW Seniors Festival kicks off on Monday, 11 March 2024.

This year’s theme is ‘Reach beyond’ and we encourage all our wonderful seniors to seek out new adventures, dabble in something new and experience the many amazing things happening in and around the city.

We all know the importance of keeping our minds and bodies active and engaged, so we’ve put together a raft of activities aimed to inspire and help you find something that you’ll love and continue to enjoy beyond the hype of the festival.

Gather your friends together to help you celebrate being a senior in Albury!
