Celebrating Age Festival (CAF) takes place annually in October after the International Day of Older Persons on 1st October. The month-long festival aims to challenge stereotypes and recognise the contribution of older people in society.
Due to the Coronavirus, we have had to adapt the festival this year to become a combination of online and offline socially distanced activities and events for people to enjoy.
The city’s hugely popular, annual walking festival – Bristol Walk Fest is back! The month-long celebration of all things walking throughout the city took place from 1st to 31st May 2021 and, due to the ongoing uncertainties, offered more of an individual and small group experience throughout the national walking month of May.
Although Bristol Walk Fest 2021 has officially finished, you can continue to access all the walks, information and inspiration on the Walk Fest website to keep you walking all year round.
In November 2018, the World Health Organisation (WHO) accepted Bristol’s application to become the 705th member of the Global Network of Age-friendly Communities.
