Fans of the legendary Elvis Presley can get their fix of all things “King” when the Texas’ Tribute to Elvis festival returns for a second year to Plano’s Southfork Ranch. Licensed by and in partnership with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., the three-day festival will feature wall-to-wall performances by tribute artists and other celebrities, parties, and Texas’ only official preliminary heat for the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest to be held during Elvis Week in Memphis, Tennessee this August.

Visitors can hear stories about Elvis from those who knew and worked with him at a special “Conversations on Elvis” discussion. Celebrity panelists include Don Collier (Elvis’ co-star in Paradise Hawaiian Style), Charles Stone (tour producer for Elvis during the 1970s), Chris Christian (songwriter and record producer) and Jimmy Velvet (recording artist who toured with Elvis).

A highlight of the weekend will be the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist preliminary contest featuring up to 25 performers from around Texas. These Elvis enthusiasts will compete for the honor of representing Texas at the Ultimate ETA Contest in Memphis, Tennessee this August. The festival will also include headliner shows featuring award-winning Elvis tribute artists and past winners of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest.

Single day tickets are $85 online ($95 at the door plus taxes/fees); three-day all-access packages are $195 plus tax online ($215 at the door, limited availability)
