All-American July 4th Getaway

GRACELAND'S ALL-AMERICAN JULY 4th GETAWAY

Thursday, July 4 – Sunday, July 7

Featuring the Incomparable Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo in Concert on Saturday, July 6th

There’s nothing more American than Elvis, rock ‘n’ roll, fireworks, BBQ, movies and NASCAR. We’ve put them all together so that you can join us in Memphis, Tennessee– chosen by Frommer’s, Trip Savvy and The Travel Channel as one of the hottest destinations of the year – to celebrate our nation’s independence!

Graceland is bigger and better than ever before, and now is the perfect time to visit. In honor of the holiday, Graceland will be home to many special events and parties. The iconic mansion will be beautifully lit in red, white and blue and the fabulous Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo will be rockin’ the Soundstage at Graceland.

Stay at the AAA-rated Four Diamond The Guest House at Graceland Resort using our discounted event code. Enjoy incredible rooms, restaurants and world-class amenities located only steps away from Graceland Mansion, Elvis Presley’s Memphis Entertainment and Exhibit Complex, and the brand-new Graceland Exhibition Center, home to three new traveling museum exhibits: Muhammed Ali: Greatest of All Time, National Geographic Presents: Earth Explorers and A Century of the American Motorcycle. The Guest House at Graceland is in the heart of all the action, and shuttles are available to take you throughout the ever-expanding Graceland campus or to visit downtown Memphis and the legendary Beale Street Entertainment District.

Neil “Spyder” Giraldo has changed the face of music throughout the 80s with his collaborator, muse and wife, Pat Benatar. More than just an explosive, steel-bending guitarist, Giraldo’s innovation helped him create Benatar’s signature sound. He’s written, produced and arranged more than 100 songs for Benatar, and helped create hits for Kenny Loggins, John Waite and Rick Springfield.
