Tips For Welcoming Visitors

The arrival of the trains is highly anticipated by those already in Parkes and festivalgoers line the platforms singing and dancing as they wait for the trains to arrive to the Parkes Elvis Festival.

Every year, over 24,000 people visit our great town – help them feel welcome.

Give them a warm Parkes greeting and some local insider tips – where is the best coffee, the nicest morning walk or best view point?

What are you favourite venues, shaded rest stops and watering holes?

Show them Parkes from the perspective of a local and encourage them to visit again throughout the year.

Remember that a visitors experience at the event will be determined by how you made them feel – leave them filled with happiness in 2023 as we celebrate Elvis’ most popular film Blue Hawaii.
