Elvis & Co is a three-day immersive live entertainment experience.

Celebrating the world’s first influencer, it features the music that shaped the King of Rock ’n’ Roll and explores the shock wave he unleashed on today’s music and culture.

This music festival, produced by Crown Production Co., will be held Oct. 27 to 29, 2023 at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville. VIP experience passes have already sold out but weekend passes are $350 and individual tickets range from $39 to $75 and are available at or 416-252-7800.

Imagine the world’s leading professional Elvis tribute artists, blues, rockabilly and rock ’n’ roll performers featured in signature shows, and an ultimate Elvis tribute artist competition sanctioned by Elvis Presley Enterprises.

Meet your MC, Memphis Jones, a household name at B.B. King’s on Beale Street and leading Memphis historian and storyteller. Greet special guest Linda Thompson — Oscar- and Grammy-nominated songwriter, actress, former wife of Bruce Jenner and David Foster and Elvis’s longtime girlfriend. Add a VIP lounge, nightly after parties, meet-and-greets, panel discussions, and festival activities all under one roof and you’ve got yourself a weekend to remember.

Deerhurst Resort provides a one-stop venue and weekend getaway for the festival. All six signature concerts including the Friday night Vintage Prom will be held in Legacy Hall, its professional concert venue. The chefs at Deerhurst are crafting a Memphis-themed food and cocktail menu and the resort is offering specially priced accommodations for the festival.

While Elvis & Co is much more than an Elvis festival, it without question has its roots in the Collingwood Elvis Festival — the first and greatest of its kind.

Elvis & Co has adopted Collingwood’s house band, The Casino Brothers, as its house band for the weekend. In addition to the tradition of the Ultimate Elvis Contest, it will feature some familiar Collingwood talent including six-time champion Connor Russo, who grew up with and began at the festival at the age of five.

Finally, it has announced Rosemarie O’Brien, former general manager of the Collingwood Elvis Festival and the person responsible for the festival’s worldwide reputation, as the Elvis & Co festival ambassador, to ensure the highest quality of guest experience.
