Best Events for Seniors in Nanaimo
Nanaimo BC is a wonderful place to call home whether you’re just starting out in life or finding a quiet spot to retire. Our winters are mild and our summers are warm. There are hundreds of events and activities year-round for seniors and those looking for a quieter pace of life but still want an active lifestyle.
The Nanaimo Harbour City Seniors is a nonprofit and volunteer organization which provides senior citizens in Nanaimo a healthy and active lifestyle with organized activities and events. Each month, the NHCS offers activities and events such as dance classes, exercise courses, craft and hobby workshops and more.
Coming up this February is the Kinsman Heritage Dinner. The dinner will be held Saturday, February 23 from 5 to 8 PM in the Bowen Auditorium with a delicious roast beef dinner, door prizes and a live band. This is part of the Heritage Days which date back to 1973. Tickets are free but are required and are available on a first-come, first serve basis.
Each month offers something a little bit different but on a regular basis seniors have the chance to attend fitness and yoga classes, tai chi, country and ballroom dancing, language classes, music classes, arts and crafts, sporting such as bowling, badminton, darts and table tennis, as well as workshops and even game classes. Seniors in Nanaimo enjoy a variety of different clubs such as a book club, computer club, writing club and more. Feel free to check out all the available dates and classes from the Harbor City Seniors website.
In addition to monthly activities there’s always different events happening year-round depending on the weather. From Christmas parties and bazaars, to road trips to Mount Washington for a beautiful day on the mountain with lunch and sightseeing, to visiting local festivals and regional events; there’s never a lack of entertaining, active events and fun things to do. Check out their website for more information.
As an avid Nanaimo resident, I love helping seniors find the right home, condominium, or town home to meet their needs and their budget. Give me a call anytime and let’s discuss your options, where you’d like to live, and your price range. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
