Parkes Elvis Festival 2022

Parkes, NSW

Event Information

The annual Parkes Elvis Festival is back in 2022 over five rockin' days from Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 April 2022.

It’s been over 40 years since Elvis Presley left the building, yet 25,000+ Elvis fans still gather in the Central NSW town of Parkes annually to celebrate The King each January.

The Festival features a jam-packed five-day program of events, including four days of free Cooke Park Main Stage entertainment, look-a-like contests, Tribute to Elvis competitions, Street Parade, displays of Elvis artefacts at Greg Page’s The Kings Castle Elvis Exhibit, the Gospel Service, the Cars of the Era show and more than 200 other unique Elvis-themed events.

This year's festival theme will celebrate Elvis’ 1968 musical film, Speedway. The costumes are fun. Think go-go dancing girls, overalls, racing suits, cars, red, white and blue – there are so many options to dress in theme! 

Parkes Elvis Festival is something on everyone’s bucket list, and why wouldn’t it be when people of all ages can don a wig and glasses to relive the rock’n’roll heyday that took the world by storm!
