Victorian Seniors Festival

The Victorian Seniors Festival is an event to honour seniors in Victoria – held in October every year at various locations around the Melbourne CBD. This week-long festival includes an array of events, activities and entertainment for all seniors.

The festival is organised by the Victorian Department of Health & Human Services to encourage seniors to get out there and participate in and enjoy a wide range of more than 1,300 activities; all generally free or low-cost.

Victorian Seniors Festival Week 2018 – Dates & Program Schedule

Free and low-cost events and activities will be presented across Victoria, including concerts, dances, theatre shows, celebratory morning teas, tours, a host of indoor and outdoor recreation activities and much more.

Popular musicians and bands also come here to perform and entertain guests. Show off your younger side and dance to some of the great tunes of yesteryear, take part in many activities and participate in various workshops held during the festival, or why not catch a one of the classic films. You can enjoy a multitude of interactive activities; such as dancing, aerobics, strength training and tai chi.

Not just contained in the city, events can also be found all over Victoria with local councils and community groups running hundreds of other fabulous events.

There is typically free public transport during the Seniors Festival (free travel dates announced in late 2018). In order to access the free public transport, simply carry your Seniors myki and Victorian Seniors Card with you on public transport, and touch on and off as usual. You won’t be charged. On regional services that don’t use myki, show your Victorian Seniors Card to the conductor or bus driver.
