NSW Seniors Festival is your time to shine. With hundreds of events and special offers, there's something new for everyone to try.

From art, music, entertainment and technology, to sport, recreation, health and good nutrition, there's a wealth of experiences to help stimulate your mind, reinvigorate your body and enrich your life.

Now in its 59th year, NSW Seniors Festival is the largest festival for seniors in the Southern Hemisphere, reaching up to 500,000 seniors each year.

If you are over 60, NSW Seniors Festival gives you the chance to make new friends or get together with old ones at an array of local community events, many which are free or heavily discounted.

Presented by the Department of Family and Community Services (FACS), NSW Seniors Festival is designed to celebrate the role seniors play and the contributions they make to the NSW community, aligning to the policy objective of inclusive communities.

Every year during NSW Seniors Festival, government, community and commercial organisations hold hundreds of events across the state, encompassing art, sport, music, entertainment, technology, recreation, health, good nutrition and much more!
