Age-Friendly Festival
Resource Toolkit

A Toolkit of Resources for Your Community

The FIRST Age-Friendly Festival (AFF) in the U.S. was held in Sarasota, Florida. The AFF in Sarasota – sparked by the Age-Friendly Sarasota (AFS) initiative – was a gift to the community from The Patterson Foundation one of the founding partners in the AFS movement. With the festival being the first of its kind in the nation, a template or reference guide did not exist for the Sarasota AFF planning team. That, however, is not the case for you and your community! Below are resources available for your community based on the Sarasota AFF journey.

If your community embarks on its own version of an Age-Friendly Festival, we’d love to hear about it! Please email us at and let us know or share with us via social media on Facebook and Twitter.
