Geelong Seniors Festival event applications

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

It is an annual community event held throughout October designed to promote opportunities in the community for older people to develop networks, explore new interests and access useful information.

The 2020 Geelong Seniors Festival theme is ‘In the Groove’.

In line with the Department of Health and Human Services direction, there will be no public gatherings for the 2020 ‘Geelong Seniors Festival' therefore 'Reimagined'. Groups are encouraged to take the opportunity to showcase their club or organisation do and engage with older people living in the Geelong region by hosting an event or an activity in keeping with the theme and restriction.

Grant funding

In addition to listing events in the Geelong Seniors Festival Program we provide Grants of up to $1,000 to assist with the costs associated with hosting an event.
