Seniors Festival 2019 - Expression of Interest

Kempsey Shire Council will be co-ordinating a calendar of events for the Seniors Festival 2019. The extent of the program will depend on grant funding and partner contributions.

The calendar will include a travelling information expo to be hosted in Kempsey, Stuarts Point and South West Rocks.

Feedback from our 2018 event stressed the importance of having fun and sharing information about services available across the Shire.

With this is mind, Council is calling for Expressions of Interest for sponsors, partners and presenters to exhibit at the 2019 Seniors Expo and to sponsor the wide array of events on the calendar.
