Seniors Festival

Every year the NSW Seniors Festival on the Coffs Coast celebrates the contribution that seniors make to our local community.

Seniors Festival activities are delivered by Council and a diverse range of community partners.

2020 highlights included free screenings of the feature documentary 'Faces Places' in Coffs and Woolgoolga, a massively popular multi-generational Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery tour and workshop, a cross-cultural memoir writing workshop, 'Tales of the Tasma' Museum event and 'Concert in the Gardens' featuring Coffs Harbour City Orchestra.  

Unfortunately the action-packed 'Seniors Celebration Market Day' had to be postponed due to forecast rain but gratefully will be held later in the year.  As with many other events at the moment, we are unable to verify a date for this postponed event whilst we closely follow the advice of the Australian Government, World Health Organisation (WHO) and NSW Health around the COVID 19 pandemic.  Watch this space for future updates.   

NSW Seniors Festival 2021 dates have now been announced and will be run from 17 – 28 March.
