Guests will travel back in time for an unforgettable weekend of 50s-themed fun, including Chubby Checker live in concert.
On June 21-23, 2019, Elvis Presley’s Graceland® will celebrate one of the most exciting decades in pop culture history – the 1950s. Graceland’s ‘Fabulous 50s Weekend’ is a trip down memory lane packed with 50s-themed activities, including a sock hop, an after-hours dinner in Presley Motors museum, movie marathons, trivia and games, parties, and more! The weekend will be highlighted by two incredible live shows, a “Salute to the King” by acclaimed Elvis Tribute Artist Victor Trevino, Jr and the legendary Chubby Checker live on the Soundstage at Graceland.
“When you think ‘50s,’ Elvis, Rock ‘n’ Roll and Graceland just fit together so perfectly,” said Debbie Miller, CMO of Elvis Presley Enterprises. “We know our guests will absolutely love everything we’ve planned for our first-ever ‘Fabulous 50s Weekend,’ and we’re thrilled to have the amazing Chubby Checker live in concert as a highlight for this destination weekend. With so many national travel publications calling Memphis a can’t miss destination in 2019, this summer is the perfect time to visit Graceland.”
In addition to all the 50s-themed events, attendees will enjoy touring Graceland like a King! They’ll visit the iconic mansion that Elvis called home; Elvis Presley’s Memphis – a 200,000 square foot entertainment complex filled with museum exhibits, shops and restaurants; and Elvis’ custom jets. Guests will also be able to explore the brand-new Graceland Exhibition Center (Opening Summer 2019) that will feature traveling exhibits on Muhammad Ali, Memphis Music Icons and The History of the American Motorcycle.
