May 30 – June 3, 2018
This annual event celebrates the life and music of Elvis, “The King of Rock and Roll” or simply, “The King.” The opening ceremony is a free event and takes place in the amphitheater at Shepard Park on the lakeside. The festival has a full schedule of Elvis tribute artists, parties at local watering holes, and special events with world-class performers. It’ll be so good, you’ll wonder if Elvis himself has actually come to visit from Graceland.
