NSW Seniors Festival 2016

Event date

NSW Seniors Festival is the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere. In 2016 NSW Seniors Festival will run from Friday 1 April to Sunday 10 April. As the festival now runs for longer than a week, its name has been changed from NSW Seniors Week to NSW Seniors Festival.  

Presented by the Department of Family and Community Services (FACS), NSW Seniors Festival is designed to thank, celebrate and recognise seniors for the role they play and the contributions they make to the NSW community. 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! 

Who is NSW Seniors Festival for?

  • people over 60
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders over the age of 50

The 2016 NSW Seniors Festival theme is Grow Young.

Grow Young is about celebrating our seniors for their energy, experience and unique ability to know who they are, and what makes them happy. No matter what your age, it’s never too late to grow – to learn, to laugh and to be inspired.
