The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest fills Branson with the stuff of any fan’s dreams; Elvis is everywhere you look! The contest to beat all contests takes place during the fabulous 14th Annual Branson Elvis Festival; they’ll be ‘taking care of business’ at the Dick Clark American Bandstand Theater, home of Legends in Concert. The Festival is a weekend-long, fun-filled tribute to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll that includes a vendor fair, two contests, and Elvis Contestant Karaoke. The centerpiece of the annual festival is, of course, the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest that will feature a fascinating lineup of Elvis impersonators from around the country. The Branson event is one of several held in both US and foreign cities, but what gives Branson the edge already is that guests can enjoy other Elvis tribute artists who perform here on a regular basis, including cousin to Elvis, Jerry Presley in Elvis Live. Branson can also boast at least one past winner of the contest, Dean Z, who performs regularly with Legends in Concert.
The festival begins on Friday, April 8th and runs through Sunday morning, April 10, with the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest Semi-Finals taking place on Saturday, April 9th at 7:00PM. Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest Finals will take place Sunday, April 10th at 2:00PM. You’ll be treated to a variety of tribute artists, both the young and the young-at-heart! A panel of judges observes from an up-close perspective right near the action, and with such an impressive group of performers, their task of selecting just one Ultimate Elvis is no small feat.
