Elvis Birthday Celebration Events!
Graceland presents several days of events each year surrounding the anniversary of Elvis' birthday, January 8. It's sort of a condensed version of Elvis Week in August - fewer days and events, a more intimate gathering of people, lower temperatures, and every bit as much fun. We will follow Elvis.com updates and post them.
