2014 NSW TrainLink Parkes Elvis Festival – 8 – 12 January
Theme: Kissin’ Cousins
It’s been over 36 years since Elvis left the building, yet an expected 18,000+ Elvis fans will gather in the Central NSW town of Parkes, doubling the population, to celebrate Elvis Presley’s birthday in January.
2014 will be the 22nd anniversary of the Parkes Elvis Festival and we are excited to welcome back, by popular demand, our feature artist Mark Andrew who will be performing at the Parkes Leagues Club and other events throughout the festival.
It is becoming apparent that the Parkes Elvis Festival is something that should be on everyone’s bucket list, and why wouldn’t it be, when people of all ages can don a wig and glasses and re-live the rock n roll era of Elvis that took the world by storm.
The festival features a jam-packed 5-day program of events including a Miss Priscilla Competition, the Elvis Street Parade, Cars of the Era Show, free main stage entertainment, look-a-like contests, Tribute to Elvis Competition, Elvis Gospel Service, Renewal of Wedding Vows, Busking Competition, Poets Breakfast, displays of Elvis memorabilia (including Greg Page’s: The Kings Castle), Wall of Fame, and over 150 unique Elvis-style events.
Check out the Events section of the website for all the event highlights and details. We look forward to seeing you in Parkes, the Elvis Capital of Australia in January!
