The Parkes Elvis Festival is held every year in the second week in January, coinciding with Elvis Presley’s birthday. Now in its 29th year, the Festival continues to grow with more than 200 events across five fabulous, fun-filled days.


Officially endorsed by the estate of Elvis Presley, Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. in Memphis, Parkes Elvis Festival hosts a number of live entertainment including the official Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest (the winner representing Australia in Memphis, USA), Feature concert series starring a special guest artist, Northparkes Mines street parade, renewal of vows ceremony, the Goodsell Machinery Miss Priscilla Dinner, and many free live concerts, competitions and prizes.


The Festival attracts over 25,000 fans, both nationally and internationally, having a global reach of more than 200 million with exposure in the United States, the United Kingdom and Asia.


I’m delighted to welcome Cathy Treasure, Festival Director of the Parkes Elvis Festival to the Eventualities podcast. Cathy has an extensive background in event management and offers some great insights into running one of Australia’s most popular regional events. And if you're an event management student or someone wanting to get some work experience under your belt...reach out to Cathy today, this is a fantastic opportunity!
