Central Coast seniors festival line-up takes shape

The 2024 Central Coast Seniors Festival is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever!

With the theme ‘Reach Beyond’ the festival will run from 11 – 24 March 2024, with the annual Seniors Expo taking place on Thursday, 21 March at Wyong Racecourse.  

Central Coast Council Director Community and Recreation Services, Melanie Smith said each year the festival provides a full calendar of events, with a huge variety of exciting activities across the Central Coast.

“Council is looking forward to delivering a festival that embraces everybody and recognises the important contributions seniors play in our community,” Ms Smith said.

“Council will shine the spotlight on a range of local services and resources available to seniors by bringing them together under one roof at the Seniors Expo on 21 March. 

“The event will feature a variety of stallholders from businesses, services, and community groups around the Central Coast. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak to organisations first-hand, ask questions and gather resources.

“We really want to see older people taking advantage of the 70+ local events taking place over the two-week festival at 22 locations across the Coast, including our popular libraries, theatres, leisure centres, galleries and more.”

Administrator, Rik Hart said the Central Coast Seniors Festival was a great time for older locals to ‘Reach Beyond,’ to seek out new experiences and make new friends by participating in the festivities.

“Council’s commitment, for all ages, is to strengthen our diverse population by creating new opportunities for connection, creativity, inclusion, and opening the door to local sporting, community and cultural initiatives. This commitment is at the heart of our Community Strategic Plan,” Mr Hart said.

“This vibrant calendar of events for Seniors Festival certainly has something for everyone, providing opportunities for belonging by getting together and celebrating the diversity of older people, and the products and services available to enhance their fantastic lifestyle on the Coast.”
