Welcome First Time Visitors
It may be the largest of its kind, but it’s also a friendly place with a real sense of community. That’s the beauty of the Collingwood Elvis Festival! Anyone who attends can let loose, release their inner Elvis and feel a little bit like The King.
This year’s theme is “Elvis: Celebrating Greatness”. It’s a chance to learn about the man his music, his attitude and his iconic image. You’ll find out what made Elvis a pop culture giant and how he continues to influence music and culture even today.
