Seasonal Specials in Downtown Memphis
Elvis Week 2017 - August 11-19
It's time to shake, rattle and roll!!
This year is especially important for Elvis week as it marks the 40th Anniversary of Elvis' death. Every August the Memphis area celebrates the life of Elvis with a full week of celebrations.
Elvis fans celebrate with music, movies and the legacy of Elvis Presley. The week always includes traditional events such as the Elvis Fan Club Presidents Event, Graceland Insiders Event, Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest and an Elvis candlelight vigil plus special concerts, panel discussions, dances and more!
The annual Candlelight Vigil stands as the cornerstone to the entire week. It begins on the evening of August 15th and lasts well into the morning of August 16th, as fans walk up the driveway to the Meditation Garden holding a candle in quiet remembrance of Elvis. Tens of thousands are expected to participate in the candlelight vigil on Elvis Presley Blvd, where they will spend the evening listening to music, remembering Elvis and enjoying the memorials that are created by fans along the street.
Come visit Memphis and enjoy the week long celebration of the man - the king! - who forever changed the face of music! Check our Elvis Week rates here.
