Young at heart?

In your best years?

Mature like a bottle of fine wine?

POP that cork and get ready to celebrate with our vibrant and active senior community during the Ballarat Seniors Festival 1 to 31 October! 

After some long stretches of isolation, isn’t it more important than ever to get together, be social and connect with one another? With specially curated classes, activities and entertainment for those aged 55 and over, the Ballarat Seniors Festival is the perfect opportunity to catch up with your friends or even make some new ones.

From floral art demonstrations and lawn bowls to picturesque walks and live music, there will be something for everyone, most of which will be accessible and low-cost or free.

So, whether you want to make friends, learn new skills or keep active, start planning your festival experience today and download the program!
