Geelong Seniors Festival 2017

The Geelong Seniors Festival is the largest community celebration for seniors in regional Victoria and a major partner of the statewide Victorian Seniors Festival.

As well as being a great opportunity to get out and about for little or no cost, the Festival provides a rare insight into what is on in Geelong for the rest of the year, as most of the events are staged by local clubs and interest groups.

The Companion Card is welcome at all Geelong Seniors Festival events.
