Elvis’ Birthday Celebration, January 5-8, 2019

Join us in Memphis on January 5-8, 2019, as we celebrate Elvis’ Birthday with four days of events, including an unforgettable fan experience featuring one of Elvis’ closest friends, Jerry Schilling. It is a special time to be in Memphis as Graceland will still be decorated for the holidays and there will be an epic birthday cake on display on January 8.

Jerry first met Elvis in 1954 and they developed a friendship that lasted a lifetime. From personal moments with Elvis spent at Graceland, to concert tours throughout the US, to a secret visit to the White House, Jerry was there. As part of this first-ever birthday package featuring Jerry Schilling, fans will get an insider look at what life was like with Elvis as told through the eyes of one of his closest friends.

The My Friend Elvis package includes two nights at The Guest House at Graceland plus exclusive package-only events, including a cocktail party, show & tell event, private movie screening and more. VIP guests will also enjoy an intimate dinner with Jerry plus special reserved seating at the show and tell event, private mansion tour lead by Jerry Schilling and Angie Marchese, and a photo opportunity in front of Graceland mansion.
