The 2018 NSW Seniors Festival will run from Wednesday 4 April to Sunday 15 April.
The theme of the 2018 Festival is Let's Do More Together.
In 2018 the Festival will celebrate its 60th year. 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.
Every year during NSW Seniors Festival, government, community and commercial organisations hold hundreds of events across the state, encompassing art, sport, music, entertainment, technology, recreation, health, good nutrition and much more!
Each year, FACS directly supports around 800,000 people, reaches a further one million people through local community-based programs, and provides over a million Seniors Cards.
Our work is broad and challenging. Every day we strive to improve lives by supporting:
