In collaboration with the Victorian State Government, the Rural City of Wangaratta are pleased to launch the Wangaratta Seniors Festival. Featured in the program are over 65 free or low-cost events taking place between 5 and 23 October 2023 across the municipality.

The theme of this year’s Victorian Seniors Festival is Learn. Love. Live. The focus is on encouraging seniors to get active, try something new, meet new people and sample what is on offer in their local area.

“This program aims to connect people and continue to build resilient communities”. Mayor Dean Rees said.

“Togetherness and ongoing connectedness make our communities strong and resilient which is an integral component for our physical and mental health”, he continued.

“I also acknowledge the dedication of volunteers and community groups that collectively bring culture, connection, social interaction, and history to our region.

These same people make up a large portion of those presenting events in the Wangaratta Seniors Festival program, so I encourage our senior community

members to take this opportunity to get involved or try something new,” said Mayor Rees.
