The annual ‘Golden Years Festival is for members of Active retirement Association’s and which is head in Waterford each year around the month of November. Over 500 senior citizens from all over Ireland take part in the event which is held in the Tower Hotel, Waterford.

The idea of a Golden Years festival was proposed by Actress Anna Manahan, who is a native and freeman of Waterford, when she spoke at the ‘Age and Power Conference’ in January 2004.

Since then the festival has run each year and has been an outstanding success.

The festival involves three days of activities including a song contest, a talent contest, a bowling contest, day trips and tours of Waterford and Dungarvan, 3 course dinners each night, Cabaret each night, Dancing each night and a festive Gala Ball to end it all.
