Kentucky Rain Band's Elvis Challenge 2023 was an evening of fun, surprises, and a one-of-a-kind tribute to the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. The event returned for its second year in 2023. Attendees saw a variety of Elvis Impersonators compete to see who will be crowned the king! The crowd was serenaded with Elvis' greatest hits sung by contestants while backed by the Northwest's #1 Elvis Tribute Band, Kentucky Rain Band.

Hosted by Heidi May & Robbie Dee, 2022 Inaugural Elvis Challenge Champion Steve Unger returned to give a special performance.
