Penrith Council believes that 'old' is just a state of mind, which is why we hold the Reimagine Ageing Festival every year. This year's Festival runs from 4 - 15 April.
The Festival is a free event for 'seniors' that will reawaken your spirit of fun and adventure, no matter how 'old' you are or feel.
Penrith Mayor Cr John Thain said this year's Festival is taking the idea of 'reimagining ageing' to a new level.
"The Festival program is focusing on the question 'who says getting older means slowing down?', which is great," Cr Thain said.
"Age isn't what it used to be. After all, 60 is the new 40 and I think it's really important that we provide experiences, opportunities and adventure for 'seniors' that are creative and vibrant," he said.
We're inviting the whole community to come to the Mondo greenspace (between Westfield and the Joan) to kick the Festival off with a bang on Wednesday 4 April from 9.30am - 1.30pm with free food, activities, classes and entertainment.
Whether you want to chill out and enjoy some music, get your groove on with some Brazilian drumming and dancing, challenge your friends to a game of tennis, be creative with cupcake decorating and the 'Colours of Yesterday' mural, or capture memories with your friends in a photobooth, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
After the launch, there will be two weeks of free activities across the Penrith region, including lunch discounts, tech classes, exercise classes, movie mornings, and a selfie event.
Make sure you pick up a copy of the Festival booklet, which lists all the activities and events during the Festival and beyond! You can grab a copy from local businesses and organisations, including Council offices, the Penrith Library and Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.
Reimagine Ageing is part of the NSW State Government's Seniors Festival.
