The Best Elvis Week 2019 Events at Graceland
It's almost that time of year again in the Birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll: Elvis Week.
For Elvis Week 2019 at Graceland in Memphis, fans of the King can expect an incredible lineup of events in honor of the legendary artist. This year's event runs from Friday, August 9th to Saturday, August 17th, with Friday, August 16th marking the 42nd anniversary of Elvis' death. You can buy tickets and packages online here.
In addition to checking out the newly-opened Graceland Exhibition Center, there are plenty of event highlights to add to your radar. Our top picks? Check out the American Sound 50th Anniversary Celebration Concert on Wednesday, August 14th to commemorate Elvis' famed recording sessions at American Sound in 1969 ("Don't Cry Daddy" and "Suspicious Minds" were just two of the songs that came out of those sessions). Another experience not to miss is the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest's final round on Saturday, August 10th. There's also the candlelight vigil on Thursday, August 15th, a gathering at the gates of Graceland, that every Elvis fan should see at least once in his or her lifetime.
If you really want to go all-out with your Elvis superfandom, consider booking a room at he AAA Four-Diamond Guest House at Graceland resort hotel or staying at Big Cypress Lodge, which is offering a Grooving in Graceland package for the week by calling 1-800-223-3333, with accomodations and Elvis Experience Tour tickets.
