Kick off the Holiday Season with the Graceland Holiday Lighting Ceremony

November 17, 2011

Special guest Lauren Alaina, “American Idol” finalist, along with children from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, will "flip the switch" to light the Graceland property and begin the holiday festivities. During this special evening, guests will also be able to enjoy holiday fun including tours of Graceland decorated for the holidays, free activities for children, and an opportunity to meet and take pictures with Santa dressed like the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

If you aren’t able to be in Memphis with us for the celebration, you can still experience the magic of this annual event with our live broadcast of the ceremony on Friday, November 18, at 6:00 p.m. CST.

During the celebration, fans will also be able to get an exclusive “Christmas at Graceland” sticker by checking into the GetGlue widget on
