Every year Council coordinates the Northern Beaches Seniors Festival, with a program of activities focusing on health and mental stimulation, food and nutrition, multicultural and intergenerational relationships, technology, accommodation and local service options.

The festival program aims to encourage over 60s to connect with their community and develop new skills and interests.
