Elvis Presley never performed at Southfork Ranch, but the King’s dramatic flair surely influenced the fictional Ewing family and its glitzy North Texas estate. While Elvis and the Ewings are gone, Southfork lives on as a tourist destination and event center. March 4-6, 2016, Southfork will host Texas’ Tribute to Elvis, featuring 18 Elvis impersonators vying for the chance to represent Texas at the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in Memphis. Along with contestant showcases, the weekend features various Elvis tribute shows, memorabilia sales, and discussions with Elvis associates, including his bodyguard, Sam Thompson; tour producer, Charles Stone; and backup singers The Holladay Sisters.
