Seniors Festival returns

with a packed line-up of events

Central Coast Council is again celebrating the annual NSW Seniors Festival with a wide range of events and activities being held across the Central Coast from 1 February to 12 February 2023.

20 January 2023

 

THE festival, which is the largest event for seniors in the southern hemisphere, aims to provide older residents an opportunity to come together, share a laugh and try something new.

 

A festival highlight for this year’s event is the Seniors Expo on 9 February, at Wyong Race Club. This will feature a variety of stallholders from services and community groups across the Central Coast that support older people to age in a healthy and positive way.

 

Central Coast Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the festival is all about providing opportunities for the community to get together and celebrate the diversity of older people on the Central Coast.

 

”We have 89,000 seniors in our region who achieve amazing things, including generously donating their time to volunteer to a number of community and sporting groups, organisations and charities,” Mr Hart said.

 

“Council is committed to further strengthening our diverse population by creating new opportunities for connection, creativity and inclusion, and opening the door to local sporting, community and cultural initiatives.

 

“This year’s festival offers a diverse 12-day calendar of events to enjoy, offering something for everyone, including educational workshops, fitness programs and entertainment to get your toes tapping and body moving.

 

“It is an opportunity to have fun and celebrate together, recognising the wisdom and experience of our seniors, and of course, the fantastic lifestyle here on the Central Coast.”
