[March 16, 2023]   The Central Illinois Senior Celebration is pleased to announce that the 23rd annual Central Illinois Senior Celebration will be held from 9 am – 2 pm on Wednesday, May 17th at the Orr Building on the State Fairgrounds. Admission is free with the donation of a canned food item, and concessions will be available for purchase at the event.

The Central Illinois Senior Celebration brings the entire central Illinois aging network together under one roof to provide a comprehensive resource fair for seniors. The event occurs in May of each year to correspond with the Administration for Community Living’s (ACL) Older Americans Month. This year’s theme is “Aging Unbound”.

This event has been a Springfield tradition for 23 years and is a great way for seniors and their caregivers to connect with local, life-enriching resources. This year, the Celebration will feature nearly 100 exhibitors, over 20 free health screenings, entertainment, door prizes, and much more.

For more information, contact Barb Hipsher or Justin Yuroff at (217) 528-4035.
