Celebrage Festival

Celebrate the young at heart!

Over the course of the festival (held in October each year) a range of events are planned aimed at promoting positive ageing within the community and active living. Many of the events are free or offered at an affordable price and are aimed at encouraging people to try a range of different activities.

Community involvement is the key focus for the Celebrage Festival and throughout the week there are an array of events for the whole family, including social activities, competitions, trips, tours, concerts, dances and movies.

"Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional." – Chili Davis.
