Get your pistons pumping ready for the 2022 Parkes Elvis Festival. From 5-9 January 2022, Parkes comes alive to celebrate Elvis' birthday and all things Elvis and Rock 'n' Roll. There'll be more than 200 events across five fabulous, fun-filled days.
The theme for the 2022 Festival is Elvis' 1968 musical film, Speedway. Elvis stars as Steve Grayson, a generous race car driver with a heart of gold who feels compelled to bail friends and acquaintances out of financial hardship. However, his manager is a compulsive gambler and had been mismanaging Steve’s winnings to support his gambling habits, landing Steve in deep trouble with the IRS.
Susan Jacks (played by Nancy Sinatra) is the IRS agent assigned to keep tabs on Steve and apply his future prize money toward his debt, but she ends up taking a romantic interest in him as well.
The costumes are fun. Think go-go dancing girls, overalls, racing suits and cars – there are so many options to dress in theme!
Reigning International Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion Taylor Rodriguez will be the 2022 Feature Artist. Taylor will perform at four action-packed shows.
Tickets will be on sale from Monday, 6th September 2021.
