Fans of the late Elvis Presley, you’re gonna want to listen up! This August, Memphis and Presley’s estate Graceland is presenting Elvis Week from August 9-17, 2024 in honor of the 47th anniversary of his passing. Graceland is sharing tons of special events during the week including live concerts, panel discussions and candlelight vigils. Let’s go over some of the most exciting events happening during the week so you can prepare for your visit. In addition to events in Memphis, there will be special tours and events in Presley’s home of Tupelo, Mississippi.

It is no secret that there is an abundance of Elvis tribute artists and impersonators out there. Now, they have a chance to prove that they are the best Elvis (after the original, of course!).
