Celebrating 2024 NSW Seniors Festival in Port Stephens

1 March 2024

Seniors in Port Stephens are ready to celebrate at this year’s NSW Seniors Festival, the largest gathering of its kind.

Themed ‘Reach Beyond’, there’ll be lots of free and heavily discounted events, activities, workshops and performances across Port Stephens, encouraging seniors to get together and enjoy social connection.

Mayor Ryan Palmer says it’s all about celebrating the invaluable contribution our seniors make to the Port Stephens community.

“Local businesses and community organisations are hosting over 30 events across our region – from music, books, movies, learning about culture, craft or getting active — there’s something for everyone to enjoy,” Mayor Palmer said.

"We have so many amazing seniors here in Port Stephens who volunteer their time, and work hard to give back, and this is an opportunity for them to get together, celebrate the wisdom and experience that comes with age, and meet new people.

“I encourage everyone to get along to as many events as possible and be part of this wonderful 2 weeks of celebration and connection,” he said.

NSW Seniors Festival runs from Monday 11 March to Sunday 24 March 2024. To see the full list of events happening across Port Stephens, visit pscouncil.info/seniors-events
