Graceland Christmas

The arrival of winter at Graceland was always a special time of year. It meant the arrival of the holidays in Memphis and the anticipation of all the fun things the season would bring, including decorating for Christmas, opening Christmas presents with friends and family, the annual New Year’s Eve party, Elvis’ birthday, building snowmen in the front yard of Graceland and more. Join us for the official Graceland Christmas event on November 21, 2014, as we kick off the holiday season with our annual Memphis Christmas Lights ceremony at Graceland!
