Seniors Festival 2017

Lots of great events and activities are happening in Cardinia Shire and across the state this October as part of  Victorian Senior’s Festival 2017

The festival gives older residents the chance to take part in fun and fulfilling events and build connections with others. 

This year’s festival theme is ‘You’re welcome’, with a focus on making new people feel welcome at local seniors’ clubs and in seniors’ groups. 

Events across Victoria will be listed on the Victorian Seniors Festival website as they are scheduled.
