The largest seniors festival in the Southern Hemisphere is coming to the Cowra Shire! Themed ‘Reach Beyond’, the 2024 NSW Seniors Festival in Cowra will run from Monday 11 to Sunday 24 March 2024, delivering many FREE and discounted activities, workshops, and performances for seniors across the Cowra Shire.

There are so many ways to Reach Beyond and celebrate seniors at the festival, with fun and entertaining events happening that will inspire seniors to be active, socialise, and share their skills and wisdom, all while connecting with their community,” said Cowra Mayor, Cr Ruth Fagan.

The main event for this year’s Festival will be the Made in Australia Concert at 2pm on Friday 15 March at Club Cowra. This free music concert is headlined by Australia’s favourite entertainers,

Eddie Daniels and Suzie Lee, and takes the audience down a time warp of Australia’s best home-grown music. The show features songs from Col Joye, Judy Stone, Slim Dusty, John Williamson, Olivia and The Seekers to name a few.

The variety of activities on offer this year wouldn’t be possible without the support of several local organisations who all actively contribute to the program. It’s a testament to Cowra’s community spirit to have such great partnerships that allow us to present this wonderful fortnight of events,” Cr Fagan said.

The Festival will kick off on Monday 11 March at the Cowra Aquatic Centre with a free morning tea and giveaway bags. Other Festival highlights include a Geometric Painting Workshop with Canimbla CWA; Pardey Photographic Collection Workshop with the Cowra Family History Group; Movie Afternoon at the Cowra Civic Centre; the 16th Great Annual Seniors Trivia Challenge at the Cowra Golf Club; High Tea @ the Cowra Information & Neighbourhood Centre; Lunchtime Theatre at Club Cowra with the Cowra M&D; and the Annual Seniors Community Luncheon hosted by Cowra-Grenfell Meals-on-Wheels.

Plus, much, much more!

While many events are free, bookings are essential to secure your place. Please visit Council’s website, 2024 Seniors Festival in Cowra | Cowra Council to download the full program and find how to secure your spot.
