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
