Celebrate older Victorians
Victoria’s one million people aged 60 years and older will be celebrated when the 39th Victorian Seniors Festival Reimagined kicks off this July.
This year’s Festival is a hybrid event, commencing with online performances including video and radio programming featuring a remarkable range of Victorian and Australian performers, creators, makers and thinkers from July and live events from October.
Celebration Day on Sunday 3 October at Federation Square will launch a month of free and low-cost events and activities across the state.
This year’s theme is ‘Keep’n on’ which encourages older Victorians to get back out there and learn new skills, make new friends and take part in fun-filled activities.
The month-long live Festival features a range of entertainment, tours, workshops and experiences across sports, wellness, education and the arts.
Highlights also include the 2021 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards ceremony on Tuesday 5 October.
Free public transport will be available for Senior Card holders from Sunday 3 to Sunday 10 October across all public transport systems including V/Line trains.
