Forever Young 50+ Lifestyle and Retirement Show

Free, informative and entertaining are three words that aptly describe the Forever Young 50+ Lifestyle and Retirement Show

The senior-focused event will be held on Sunday, Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. indoors at Burlington’s Royal Botanical Gardens Visitor Centre. The show offers free admission, informative seminars, live entertainment, a variety of exhibitors and onsite parking.

Back for the 20th time, the twice-annual show presented by Forever Young newsmagazine welcomes the first 750 visitors with loot bags packed with information.

The extensive list of exhibitors features everything for seniors including retirement residences, financial experts, health practitioners and tour operators. The Forever Young 50+ Lifestyle and Retirement Show also features retailers and community groups that offer opportunities for fun and outlets for various talents and interests.

Exhibitors are eager to speak to the attendees about their business and some will be offering giveaways. Be sure to visit Forever Young’s booth to get a ticket for a chance to win one of the many door prizes that will be given away throughout the day.

There will be three informative 20-minute seminars at scheduled times throughout the show. The first presentation at 10:45 will feature Karin Schuett of Circle of Life Cremation and Burial Centre Inc. as she discusses the changing trends in funerals and cremations. Karin bring her caring, compassion and creativity to her role as a licensed funeral director, which is evident in the warmth, sensitivity and practicality she displays in dealing with the loss of a loved one.

At 12 p.m. life insurance and investment advisor Atiya Ahsan will discuss the simpler tools for effective estate planning.

And at 1:30 p.m. representatives from Hamilton Municipal Cemeteries start the conversation about how you can share your wishes with your loved ones about how you want to be remembered upon your passing.

The afternoon also will feature the sounds of The Toronto All Star Big Band, back by popular demand to perform a one-hour set beginning at 3 p.m. The talented young musicians perform music from the golden age of big bands (1930 to 1950) throughout Ontario and the United States. The band engages in cultural nostalgia with excellent programming and choreography.
