Seniors Festival

Older People

NSW Seniors Festival is held annually and celebrates the valuable contribution seniors make to our community. Here in Bathurst, it is our way of saying thank you to seniors and a great opportunity for all the generations to join with older people to celebrate.

Celebrations include more than 700 events across metropolitan, regional and rural NSW and seniors are encouraged to take time out to learn something new, step out at one of the many dance events, be adventurous with a new outdoor activity or visit an art gallery or museum.

Celebrate with the NSW Seniors Festival

Bathurst will be celebrating Seniors Festival from 1 to 12 February 2023 with an array of events and activities for Bathurst Seniors. Council has developed a program of activities, in collaboration with the Seniors Festival Organising Committee.
