“All The Fun of an Elvis® Festival in One Great Location” !!!
Greetings dear Elvis fans and welcome to the official TORONTO ELVIS FESTIVAL website. We promise to keep you up to date with life in the Elvis World. We also need to hear from you concerning our festival and suggestions on how we can make it even better ([email protected])-. The Toronto Elvis Festival was launched in 2009 by Heather and Nevin Grant to address a perceived need in the Festival world. Elvis continues to command loyal fan gatherings … usually in legions, arenas, school auditoriums and community centers. After ten years of judging Elvis Festivals, Nevin and Heather felt there should be a festival that would allow Elvis (at least once a year) to perform in the environment of the best Vegas lounges. STAGE WEST was the perfect answer!!! (STAGEWEST.COM). Our ETAs perform in a classy, tiered theatre with booths and tables and linens and a fantastic dinner menu (see photos). Part of the complex includes luxurious hotel suites and a real FUN waterslide pool. We also provide FREE PARKING with unlimited in and out privileges. You arrive at Stage West … park ... and take a room so you’re there all weekend long, mixing with your friends and favourite ETAs (Elvis Tribute Artists)… with no worries about the weather! We like to call ourselves Canada’s “FUN” Festival. Check out the good times featuring competitors in previous Toronto Elvis Festivals. We need YOU to be in these pictures too!!!

ADJUSTMENT TO ELVIS PRESLEY ENTERPRISES (EPE) COMPETITION RULES
It was initially written in the rules that you could not have an ETA who has won another preliminary contest compete in your contest. Due to concerns raised on this rule change, we have adjusted the rules to reflect that each preliminary contest organizer may determine if they would like to allow ETAs who have won past contests to enter their contest. This will be solely up to the preliminary round. Please note however, if you do allow an ETA who has won another prelim to compete and they win your contest, they will not be able to represent your contest in Memphis – they will only be able to represent the first contest they won. Therefore, you would need to go to the second place winner and so forth.
