Festival Spotlights Sarasota's Age-Friendly Attributes

October 24, 2017

A new event this weekend aims to spotlight the region as a place where people of all ages can make the most of life, while advancing Sarasota’s reputation as a wonderful place to grow old. The Age-Friendly Festival, promoted as the first in the nation to celebrate “lifelong well-being,” brings more than 125 exhibits, performances and other demonstrations to the Sarasota Fairgrounds.

Debra Jacobs, president and CEO of The Patterson Foundation, says the inaugural festival continues the “age-friendly” movement embraced by community leaders here for more than a decade. “We hope to show that what’s good for one generation actually is good for all generations,” she says.
