Parkes Elvis Festival

Celebrate 30 years of the Parkes Elvis Festival with fellow fans from the Travel at 60 community!

The festival features a jam-packed five-day program of events, including look-a-like contests, the beloved Street Parade, displays of Elvis artefacts, an absolutely amazing Gospel Service (where you'll enjoy priority seating), vintage cars and so much more. Step back into the 50's with muscle cars, Priscilla lookalikes and an Elvis literally on every corner of the township of Parkes.

Our host has hand-picked the best of the festival program, securing tickets to the best concerts in Parkes. You'll be nothin' but a hound dog, crying all the time, if you miss out!

You'll also visit the Parkes Dish, enjoy dinner and show in Cowra, and finish it off in the quaint little village of Canowindra at decadent Montrose House.  

Call 1300 414 198 to hold your place on this fun-filled musical getaway!

Should I dress in costume for this event?

We want you to make the most of this event, dress up, don't dress up, its up to you.Do however make sure you pack comfortable shoes, sunscreen and a hat.
