It’s Expo month! Join us for a fabulous Expo featuring over 200 stalls and a HUGE line-up of great entertainment! There’ll be vintage cars, robots, colourful dancers, gourmet food, coffee carts, musicians and senior superstar DJ Sue keeping those beats pumping! Feel like a dance? There’ll also be a dance floor to strut your stuff – so bring your dancing shoes and come on down!
There’ll also be a team of daleks helping us keep the event running smoothly and COVID-safe, a minister or two, plus celebrity cook and seniors nutrition expert Maggie Beer*. What more could an Expo celebrating Canberra’s unique and vibrant seniors community possibly want?
Doors open at 10am and entry is by gold coin donation. Help us paint the town silver in an Expo to remember!
