The 2017 Tweed Tribute to Elvis Festival will be held the 4th weekend in August in order not to conflict with Elvis Week in Memphis. A big Thank You to the many sponsors for their support, the volunteers for all the work they do, all year and on the weekend, Freddy Vette and the Flames for the Friday Night Sock Hop, the Casino Brothers Band for the amazing back-up for the Pat Dunn Showcase and the Competition Finals on Sunday, K_B Productions for the staging, sound and lightling, and all the fans who braved the sun and rain to cheer on their favourites, and relive the music of their youth. Elvis still lives in Tweed! See you in 2017!
