Each year the Wollongong City Seniors Festival program of events encourages our city’s seniors to get out and connect with others in their communities.
There are opportunities to enjoy fantastic talks, tours, workshops, dance and music events, exhibitions, and much more.
The festival celebrates the valuable contribution older residents make to our community and is made possible by a variety of local organisations working together to deliver the festival program. I would like to thank the volunteers and event organisations who give their time to ensure the success of what is one of the largest seniors celebrations in New South Wales.
I hope you enjoy the variety of activities and events on offer throughout the 2023 Wollongong City Seniors Festival.
