On May 29, the 5th City Festival "SAD: Happy and Active Longevity" will be held in the Mikhailovsky Garden of the Russian Museum - the main city Open Air for senior Petersburgers and everyone who wants to live happily ever after.

The heroes of the festival are opinion leaders and active Petersburgers aged 55+. They develop initiatives for seniors and inspire with their audacity and desire to be active regardless of age. At the SAD site, you will get acquainted with the brightest cases performed by senior Petersburgers, attend the awarding ceremony for the “Seniors. Become the Heart of Change ”and learn how you yourself can become the center of change.

This year the SAD festival program includes:

  • The explosive lectures of the past festival about the future are transformed into art mediation on contemporary art;
  • Talking about romantic relationships after 50: can people of elegant age become bride and groom again, or are their roles limited to caring for children and grandchildren? The culmination of this track will be the 55+ fashion show "Super Star Wedding or Elegant Wedding" by the St. Petersburg Fashion Association;
  • The long-awaited novelty of the festival is social dance: master classes from dancers from the Spit of Vasilievsky Island. Prepare the legs, in the program: salsa and rumba, tango and foxtrot, bachata and waltz;
