Ramping up for Seniors Festival

Seniors Festival preparation in is full swing as Wangaratta secures 70’s superstar, Colleen Hewett, for the annual free country concert.

Hewett was one of the most successful and popular female artists of the 1970s and regularly performs in clubs around Australia.

The concert, held at the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre, is a sell-out each year and is a highlight for many festival-goers.

The Victorian Seniors Festival is running from the 6 – 20 October 2019. The festival encourages seniors from across the region to come together and participate in a number of events including indoor and outdoor activities, come and try’s and concerts. Local community and sporting groups put on various free or low-cost activities to encourage our seniors to get out, get active and socialize.

The Rural City of Wangaratta Events Team is now seeking Expressions of Interest from community and sporting groups to program activities for this year’s festival. Expressions of Interest can be found below or you can collect a hard copy at the Wangaratta Government Centre, Wangaratta Library and Wangaratta Visitor Centre.
