Victorian Seniors Festival

2021 SF.jpg

The Victoria Seniors Festival is held annually in October, beginning with International Day of Older People on October 1st. 

In 2020 we saw the festival presented in an online and radio format only, due to coronavirus restrictions. Despite the ongoing challenges we have made some COVID-proof plans for 2021.

Celebration Hampers

Thank you to all the people who nominated someone special in their life to receive a celebration hamper.

We had a fantastic response and the hampers are now all snapped up and will be delivered during October, which is Seniors Month.
