Geelong Seniors Festival Program
A major partner of the state-wide Victorian Seniors Festival, the Festival program features a variety of events including entertainment, exhibitions, tours, ‘come and try’ sessions and special offers.
All events are hosted by local groups keen to showcase their club or organisation to older people living in the Geelong region.
The program for the 2016 Geelong Seniors Festival will be available online and from all City of Greater Geelong Customer Service Centres and Coles Supermarkets by early September.
As well as promotion in the festival program (90,000 distribution), there is the opportunity to apply for financial assistance of up to $450 to offset event costs (conditions apply). Special offers for seniors will also be considered.
