We celebrate our ageing population and the valuable contribution seniors make to our community. 

Cessnock City Seniors Festival 

With dozens of free events, the festival is a chance to get to know what clubs and activities are on offer in the Cessnock Local Government Area all year round. It's about making connections not just during the festival, but also following the festivities. 

Our 2021 Seniors Festival is taking place from 13 to 24 April. Take a look at it's event page for more information and to download the full program.
