Festival highlights range from the free Premier’s Gala Concerts, to the NSW Seniors Festival Expo and Festival Comedy Show at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour.

Running from 25 March to 3 April 2022, the 2022 NSW Seniors Festival is aimed at delivering world-quality entertainment and engaging activities for people over 60, in COVID safe settings.

Events are planned to be a mix of face-to-face and online entertainment and activities.

Seniors can also get involved in events in their local communities with the NSW Seniors Festival Grants Program supporting a range of activities across the state.

Seniors Minister Natalie Ward said the event would build on a strong legacy of showing NSW seniors how much they are valued.

“The NSW Seniors Festival has been running successfully for more than 60 years and is a great way to promote inclusion and encourage older people to get involved in health, art, music, technology and physical activity,” Ms Ward said.
