Parkes Shire Council is inviting local businesses and residents to provide feedback on the 2019 Parkes Elvis Festival.

Council is asking for the community to let them know what worked well and to go along to the meeting with ideas to improve the Festival for 2020.

The community feedback evening will be held on Wednesday, February 6, 5.30pm for a 6pm start in the Starlight Room, Parkes Services Club. 

The 27th Parkes Elvis Festival saw a record-breaking 27,000 festival fans congregate in Parkes for five action-packed days of live music, special events, talks and more, all in celebration of The King himself.

Festival Director Cathy Treasure noticed people arrived earlier this year and international visitor numbers definitely increased.

“The festival was covered on Saudi Arabia, Baghdad, India and South African TV, we had our Japanese visitors return, and we had UK visitors who saw the festival on TV last year and decided to attend this year,” she said.
