Get involved in Australia’s biggest Elvis party, the 2023 Parkes Elvis Festival, by entering a competition.

If you can sing like The King you can perform on the Cooke Park Main Stage in the Tribute to Elvis Competition that has both Junior and Senior categories.

Footpaths, street corners, cafés and shop fronts become a stage for the brilliant array of talented, quirky and beginner artists performing for Festival fans passing by, in the Bringing It Back Busking Championships. The top three buskers get to perform on the Cooke Park Main Stage.

If singing isn’t your thing, you can dress up and take part in the FREE Elvis and Priscilla Look-alike Competitions on the Cooke Park Main Stage, or join in the fun at the Miss Priscilla Dinner and Competitions. The NSW Pin Up Pageant will be hosted over three days of the Festival for rockabilly and vintage fashion lovers.

We know life is better when you Rock‘n’Roll, so get your hips swinging and enter the McDonald’s Rock’n’Roll Dancing Competition. It’s a lot of fun whether you join in as a competitor or a spectator.

Elvis-themed floats, vintage and classic cars and motorcycles join Elvis and Priscilla look-alikes, walking entries and marching bands can enter competitions in the Northparkes Mines Street Parade.

Show your most treasured collectible in the Festival’s car shows and competitions, including the Classic and Heritage Vehicle Show, Cars of the Era Display, or the Kombi Display.

The Elvis Photography Competition and exhibition showcases outstanding work from both amateur and established photographers. This closes on 1 October.
