Seniors Festival February 2020

Wollongong's Seniors Festival 2020, which kicks off today, is a celebration of life and fun that encourages seniors to try new experiences, learn new skills and actively participate in the community.

This year’s festival includes talks, tours, workshops, dance and music events, exhibitions and an Active Seniors program.

From An Evening In Africa to a Bush Dance Taster, there are more than 80 events across the city over the 12-day festival. Check out the program and book events on our website.

Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery AM said the festival celebrates the valuable contribution our older residents make to our community, made possible by local organisations working together.

“This festival is one of the largest seniors celebrations in New South Wales. Wollongong is a place where our older residents are encouraged and supported to remain involved and connected. They are valued in their communities and in the city.”

Unfortunately the ever popular Lady Mayoress’ Afternoon Tea Dance is fully booked. Instead why not try a Tai Chi class, an exhibition at the Australian Motorlife Museum, a concert with the Versatile Wind and Brass, or a talk on Why the World loves Nordic Noir, Scandinavian crime thrillers.

Wollongong City Council has supported the Seniors Festival for more than 30 years with thousands of people enjoying new events, learning new skills, trying different experiences and just having fun.
