Elvis Presley

The Penticton Elvis Society celebrates 17 years of running The Penticton Elvis Festival.

The festival brings Elvis Fans from far and wide to the perfect holiday haven – Penticton, British Columbia. They come to celebrate “The King Of Rock & Roll” – Elvis Presley!

Dozens of tribute artists grace the outdoor stages which are set around the picturesque Okanagan Lake, along with special guests – “Friends Of Elvis”. It’s a wonderful weekend of remembering Elvis through his extensive musical library, and touching stories from those who knew him about how he touched their lives. We invite you to join us on our anniversary – where the spirit of Elvis is guaranteed to rock this summer holiday town in a way that Penticton has never experienced before! The Penticton Elvis Festival Society is a not-for-profit society whose main goal is to celebrate the life and music of the greatest entertainer ever known… Elvis Presley. The 3-day Festival is an annual event taking place in the picturesque city of Penticton, British Columbia, Canada in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. With Skaha Lake at the south end of town and Okanagan Lake at the north end of town, Penticton truly is “A Place To Stay Forever”.
