Knox Seniors Festival 2017 - Call for Events

Seniors Festival

If your club, group or organisation would like to offer an activity during the 2017 Knox Seniors Festival, we would like to hear from you.

This year’s Knox Seniors Festival has a new look, as we will only run from 2-14 October. An initiative of the Department of Health and Human Services, the Knox Seniors Festival is a great opportunity to get out there and enjoy a wide range of activities that are generally free or low cost.

The Festival provides an insight to what’s on offer for Knox residents throughout the year and connects seniors with local clubs and community groups.

What types of events could be included?

We are interested in including events that showcase positive and active ageing such as social; sporting; education; cultural; multicultural; and intergenerational events.

What criteria do events need to meet?

Events should:

  • promote active ageing
  • promote social inclusion and participation
  • be affordable and offer value for money
  • have equal access to all seniors.

Every club/organisation who wishes to be considered will need to complete an Event Details Form and Event Holder Agreement Form and return fully completed by Friday 5 May 2017. For further details, please call Linda our Seniors Support Officer on 9298 8000 or email
