It’s being billed as the largest Senior’s Festival in the Southern Hemisphere and the Coffs Coast’s own seniors are being invited to enjoy the free, fun and fascinating activities in this year’s NSW Senior’s Festival.
Themed ‘Love to Celebrate’, the 2020 Festival will deliver hundreds of free or heavily discounted events, workshops, and performances. In the Coffs area, there is a massive range of interesting events – from learning to write your autobiography, taking part in balance training, free movie showings, a special celebratory market day and an art tour.
The Festival runs from Wednesday February 12 to Sunday February 23. With the diverse range of experiences on offer, seniors will be inspired to be active, socialise and share their skills and wisdom all while connecting with their community.
NSW Seniors Festival is a NSW Government initiative, with Coffs Harbour City Council and community partners providing a diverse range of activities to suit all tastes.
