Each year, Whitehorse City Council and local community organisations host a range of events celebrating the valuable contributions older people make to our community.
The festival runs though out the month of October and is held in conjunction with the Victorian Seniors Festival, which consists of hundreds of free or low-cost events, forums and activities across the state.
There are over 70 events in this year’s festival to choose from. Download Whitehorse Seniors Festival 2019 booklet ( PDF 503.81KB) for the full program or check out the highlighted events below.
The State Government will provide eight days of free public transport for Victorian Seniors Card holders in metropolitan and regional Victoria for the period 6-13 October, 2019.
