Festival keep'n on in 2021

Welcome to the 2021 Victorian Seniors Festival Reimagined.

For 39 years, the Victorian Seniors Festival has delivered a range of entertainment, events and performances, supporting senior Victorians to get involved and connect with their community.

We are proud to present a diverse festival in 2021, giving more seniors more opportunities to get involved. Our theme for 2021 – keep’n on – recognises the resilience of senior Victorians and while we may not be able to get together in person, we can come together online, share experiences and be inspired. 

From July to December, the Festival will present over 60 online performances from remarkable Victorian and Australian performers, creators and makers. Through music and dance performances, radio plays, curated conversations and comedy, the Festival celebrates and shares Victoria’s diverse community. 

Enjoy the authentic sounds of Gunditjmara singer and songman Dave Arden, the Yeng Gali Mullum Choir and the west African inspired Djoliba Rattler Quartet. Watch performances from Rawcus, a critically acclaimed ensemble of performers with and without disability, and the Performing Older Women’s Circus. And listen in to powerful conversations about cultural, creative and intergenerational experiences.

I encourage you to check out our online programs, leave us a comment, and share with your friends.
