Empire State Tribute Festival

Enjoy four huge tribute concerts, including the largest Elvis Tribute contest in the world!

Lake George Elvis Festival

Calling all Elvis fans! The Empire State Tribute Festival will feature one of the largest Elvis festivals in North America since 2004 is coming back to Verona, New York, but with something new this year. From May 2-5, 2024, there will be four different concerts at the Turning Stone Resort Casino. Rather than only focusing on the King, this year there will be tribute acts from some of the most iconic musicians of all time, including, of course, Elvis, The Beatles, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Madonna, George Micheal, Tom Jones, and more!

Some of the world’s top Elvis Tribute Artists will kick off the performances on Thursday, May 2, offering a sampling of the music icon’s best music from his early start in the 1950s to the 1970s.

On Friday, May 3, the competition begins and the top Elvis Tribute Artists compete for prizes and the chance to represent the Empire State Tribute Festival and this year’s Images of the King World Championship. Also on Friday will be a special examination of Elvis’ influence on British pop and rock music with appearances from Elvis, Elton John, Marilyn Monroe, and more!

Then, on Saturday, May 4, the preliminary competitions continue and there will be a special VIP Meet and Greet later that day. That night, enjoy a special concert: Elvis Meets the Beatles.

The festival concludes on Sunday, May 5, with an hour of Elvis Gospel and other inspirational performances by this year’s headliners, wrapping up with the naming of this year’s champion. Make sure to stick around for the Wrap Party that night!
