Roll Up for All the Fun of the Festival!


The ‘Every Generation Festival' that is - it's fast approaching!

From tours, food & fashion Shows, to an exclusive conversation with media titan George Negus, COTA SA is excited that the 49th Annual Every Generation Festival is less than 2 weeks away!

Running from Saturday the 15th until Friday the 28th of October, the Festival offers a huge variety of engaging, exciting, fun and thought-provoking events and activities for everyone to enjoy.

There are over 250 community events happening state-wide and we're confident that 2016 will eclipse the 40,000+ attendees who enjoyed the assortment of activities on offer last year.

The Every Generation Festival strives to connect older Australians through events, conversations, community involvement, and artistic creativity. Take a look at the entire Program here - https://www.cotasa.org.au/programs/Festival/2016/program.aspx
