The Victorian Seniors Festival runs throughout October, with Seniors Week celebrations happening from October 6-13. So if you have an exceptional 60-plus person in your life or are one very special senior yourself, now’s the time to start thinking social, fun and friend-focused activities.

More than 2500 free or low-cost events will be running across the state next month as seniors hit the streets looking for like-minded adventurers. Free public transport for Victorian Seniors Card holders covering all metropolitan and V-Line services during Seniors Week means getting around town has never been easier, and that’s just what you’ll need to do if you want to take advantage of everything on offer. 

The Victorian Seniors Festival began in 1982 under the name Senior Citizens Week, and as the years have progressed so too has the range of exciting community-minded events. A festival hub was introduced at the Melbourne Town Hall in 2007 and more than 150,000 seniors attended events across the state in 2016. This year’s festival is shaping up to be a ‘doozy’.

The Victorian Senior of the Year Awards, which are held in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services and the Council on the Ageing, will be announced on October 22. The categories include the Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year; Promotion of Multiculturalism Award; Healthy and Active Living Award; Veteran Community Award, Council on the Ageing Victoria Senior Achiever Awards; and the Age-Friendly Victoria Award.  

So how do you find out more about what’s going on in your neck of the woods during this month-long festival? The Seniors Festival Program booklet, which includes everything you need to know about what’s on, where and when, plus contact details for your region’s people in the know, is available from all Coles supermarkets. You can also visit www.seniorsonline.vic.gov.au to find out more.

Get to it.
