Each year the Victorian Seniors Festival attracts over 180,000 Victorians who participate in a variety of free and low-cost local events and activities that promote ageing positively. This year the Seniors Festival is turning 40 and is planned to feature in-person and online events and activities spread throughout local communities.
The Baw Baw Seniors Festival is part of a major statewide program for Victorians over 60 that focuses on providing fun and good times with free or low cost events and activities in October each year
In previous years, activities have included:
- Group fitness
- Aquatic classes
- Singing and dancing activities
- Gardening sessions
- Movie screenings and more
As part of this year's celebration, all local Senior's Festival events and activities will be promoted via a booklet distributed by Baw Baw Shire Council to showcase everything that's on offer for local seniors to enjoy. Anyone interested in getting involved and promoting their event and/or activity within the local Senior's Festival booklet are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 29 July 2022.
