The King of Rock N' Roll's legacy will live forever. For the first time, ever, Denver will be hosting an event that celebrates Elvis Aaron Presley.

Elvis is a legend that attracts all ages, young and old. Fans of the young Elvis, the older Elvis, the thinner King, the 'Bigger' King. Denver, Colorado, is going to have a big 3-day festival celebrating everything Elvis Presley.

Look at that guy, looking like he hardly had a care in the world, back then in 1975; hard to believe he'd be gone in 1977. Taken too young; maybe that's part of the reason everyone still loves him so.


How could such an event not have happened before in Colorado? Imagine seeing that epic "ELVIS '72" concert, with those giant letters behind him: E L V I S. This festival will have your chance to relive that. That's just be one of the events happening over the three day event that will feature NINE different Elvis impersonators.

This festival is endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises, giving them permission to use all his music, videos and dance moves (I didn't know you needed permission to dance like The King.) The festival will include a big Gospel day, where all of the performers will be on stage singing Elvis' greatest Gospel hits. The festival will also include tributes to other great artists such as Elton John and the Four Seasons. The big finale, however, will be a fantastic tribute recreation of Elvis' last concert in 1977. Wow.

Tickets for the Colorado Elvis Festival, August 25-27, 2022 at the DoubleTree at the Denver Tech Center, start at $95, going up to $395 for the whole weekend with Meet & Greets with the performers. This could be a really fun time for you or someone you know.
