Senior Celebrations

Wodonga Senior Celebrations coincides with Victorian Seniors Festival each year in October and recognises the wonderful contribution older people make to our community.

In Wodonga, the popularity of our festival has grown significantly in recent years. The event is organised by Wodonga Council with the assistance of a voluntary committee that provides information and assistance leading up to and during the festival.

Several venues host events throughout the city for a two-week festival and the majority of the events are free.

Make sure you mark out Monday, October 2 to Sunday, October 15, 2017 in your calendar for this year's event.

Wodonga Senior Celebrations will feature an exciting program of activities including, but not limited to:

• Concerts or performance piece;
• Open days;
• Come and try activities; and,
• Recreational activities.

This is an opportunity for you to promote your services and engage with the wider community.

October is an exciting time for seniors with a number of free or affordable activities taking place across Wodonga. Last year event saw approximately 6,000 attendees enjoy over 150 individual events aimed at those aged 50 years or older.

Expressions of interest will be assessed by the committee and a member of the council’s events team for how relevant the activity or event is to the target market (primarily senior residents of Wodonga and surrounds).
The panel will also ensure there is a cross section of events from commercial businesses, non for profit and community groups.
