About this holiday

Slide 1 of 2
Cowra Motor Inn External

The Parkes Elvis Festival is usually held every year in the second week in January (coinciding with Elvis Presley’s birthday). After a hiatus in 2021 and a short postponement in 2022, this beloved event makes its eagerly awaited return in April - and our community of travellers is heading there together to join the fun!

Now in its 29th year, the festival continues to grow – with more than 200 events celebrating not only the King of Rock, but all thing 1950s.

You'll be nothin' but a hound dog crying all the time if you miss the greatest event in Australia - the Elvis Festival in Parkes, NSW. 

This five-day tour is jam-packed full of activities, all centred around the celebration of the one and only Elvis Presley. Step back into the 50s with muscle cars, Priscilla lookalikes and an Elvis literally on every corner of the lovely township of Parkes. You will enjoy multiple shows, concerts, parades, gospel service and so much more! This is a monster event for all ages, there's something here for the whole family.

We will take you to the Parkes Dish as well as a dinner and show here in Cowra, and finish it off in the quaint little village of Canowindra at decadent Montrose House.
