Ladies, heat those lash curlers and get those hairspray cans all shook up – the Miss Priscilla competition is back for another glamorous night of big entertainment and even bigger hairstyles at the 2018 Parkes Elvis Festival, 10-14 January, 2018.

Returning for the 11th year, this shimmering showdown sees women from all walks of life pulling out the stops to resemble The King’s one and only Queen Priscilla Presley, with one lucky lady to be crowned the Face of the Festival at the Goodsell Machinery Miss Priscilla Dinner, on Thursday 11 January, 2018.

Tickets to the Miss Priscilla Dinner are on sale now at As well as a delicious dinner and witnessing the crowning of the 2018 Miss Priscilla winner, guests will enjoy a special performance by Parkes’ 2016 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist winner Jack Gatto, and local favourites Amarite.

For those out of towners, Regional Express will operate the Regional Hound Dog Express – a designated return flight service to the Parkes Elvis Festival. The flight will depart Sydney on Thursday 11 January in time for the Miss Priscilla Dinner and return on Sunday 14 January.
