Come to The Collingwood Elvis© Festival
Annually re-creating the nostalgia of an era, the Collingwood Elvis Festival© delivers four days of family-friendly, multi-generational musical programming centred around a household name and musical icon.
What began as a small town community music festival has now become an event of distinction that is recognized by the Ministry of Tourism as an award-winning, signature event for the province that has the capacity to draw visitation both nationally and internationally. The event is also recognized as one of the top 100 events in the province by Festivals and Events Ontario that has truly “united a community and invited the world.”
Sanctioned & licensed with Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. since 2007, the Collingwood Elvis Festival is recognized as one of the original Qualifying locations for the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in Memphis, Tennessee.
The 18th Annual Collingwood Elvis Festival will be themed “Elvis Worldwide” in celebration of the incredible impact that Elvis had, and is still having, around the globe. Fans and Tribute Artists alike visit Canada, the Province of Ontario, and more specifically the Town of Collingwood to join the festivities from every corner of the world.
This year will see Elvis Tribute Artists participating from Australia, the United Kingdom, Scotland, Ireland, Brazil, Japan, Denmark, Germany, the United States, the Philippines, and of course, Canada.
Offering over 95 hours of programming including, 4 Tribute Artist competitions, 14 ticketed shows, 4 Vegas style concerts, 15+ venues, 12+ free performances, a Carnival, a Parade and many nominal cost events, the Collingwood Elvis Festival is respected as the largest Elvis Festival in the World. Among our successes is a signature event held on Friday, and sees tens of thousands of enthusiastic Elvis fans fill our street at the Awesome Street Party. An event that boasts 9 hours of non-stop, free entertainment featuring over 120 Elvis Tribute Artists from youth performers to the “young at heart”. There is virtually something for all ages, all tastes and all budgets.
