Each August, Elvis fans from around the world gather in Memphis for a celebration of the music, movies and legacy of Elvis Presley. Elvis Week always includes traditional events such as the Elvis Fan Club Presidents Event, Elvis Insiders Event and Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, plus special concerts, panel discussions, dances and much more.
The cornerstone event of Elvis Week each year is the Candlelight Vigil. The Candlelight Vigil always begins on the evening of August 15 and lasts well into the morning of August 16, as fans walk up the driveway to Meditation Garden holding a candle in quiet remembrance of Elvis. Tens of thousands of participants gather on Elvis Presley Blvd. during the evening to listen to music, remember Elvis and enjoy the memorials that are created by fans along the street.
Whether your schedule allows you to come for the whole week or just a long weekend, Elvis Week has something for everyone.
