Dust off your blue suede shoes, the King of Rock n' Roll has found a new place to dwell. 

There will be no heartbreak as performers and fans check into Penticton for the annual Penticton Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival.

Some of the best Elvis tribute artists take the stage in both amateur and professional categories.

The three-day festival takes place June 24-26 at a number of venues around the Peach City offering Elvis' rock and roll as well as his favourite gospel works.

Elvis Tribute Artists take part in judged competitions as they compete to be named professional and amateur champions. 

Some of the most renowned tribute artists are showcased in professional live shows and the Sunday Showcase of Gospel Music.
