Age-Friendly Festival Update: Participation Deadline July 31

Posted on July 11, 2017 by Vicki Vega
There’s still time to participate in the Age-Friendly Festival … but the door of opportunity is closing fast with the approaching July 31 submission deadline.

The first-ever celebration of lifelong well-being aspires to connect people of all ages in our region. Mark your calendars now for Saturday, October 28, 2017, at Sarasota Fairgrounds for this day long festival where admission is free.

Individuals and exhibitors from businesses, government, nonprofits, and the media will share information on a variety of topics that optimize community assets and enhance quality of life.

The Festival will feature exhibits, education, experiences, and entertainment highlighting:

— Arts & Culture
— Health & Wellness
— Livability Options

Attendees will enjoy free live entertainment and food for purchase will be available throughout the day (think food trucks!).

Exhibit space is available at no cost to participants advancing Age-Friendly principles and promoting lifelong well-being.

You can learn more about this opportunity and submit the online "Request to Participate" form … but be sure to do it no later than July 31.

The Age-Friendly Festival is a product of Age-Friendly Sarasota which is part of the World Health Organization’s Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities -- an effort of more than 400 communities worldwide benefiting more than 130 million people. Age-Friendly Sarasota was the first community in Florida to be recognized as an Age-Friendly community by WHO and AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, a national affiliate of the global effort. Age-Friendly Sarasota works with its seven founding partners to propel its progress. For additional information on this initiative, see FAQs about Age-Friendly Sarasota.
