Auction Paddle Required for In-Person Attendees to the Auction at Graceland

The first-ever Auction at Graceland will be held on August 14, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. CT. You can preregister and bid online right now by visiting the online Auction at Graceland.

If you wish to attend the auction in person here at Graceland, please note that we have limited space. An auction paddle is required for each person to be admitted, and there is a limited supply. Bid approval is required for paddles.

You can register for bid approval in advance online at LiveAuctioneers and reserve a paddle by emailing [email protected], or you can register in person on Thursday, August 14. Those who have not reserved a paddle in advance will be assigned on a first-come, first serve basis on-site here at the Graceland Auction table, located in the Graceland Ticket Pavilion, on Thursday August 14, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.     

To collect your paddle, please look for the Graceland Auction table on Thursday, August 14, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. inside the Graceland Ticket Pavilion, and again between 6:00 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. in the Graceland Archives Studio .


There will be a $50 charge* for each paddle payable at the time of pick-up via cash or credit card.  You will be asked to complete a short form, your credit card will be charged, and your paddle(s) assigned. If you have reserved a paddle in advance, please let the attendant know when collecting your paddle as we anticipate paddles to sell out fast.

Please remember that a paddle is required for each person’s entry into the auction room. so please be sure to reserve the appropriate number in advance and have the paddle with you when you attend that evening.

The Auction at Graceland will be held in the new Graceland Archive Studio. You will need to board a shuttle at the shuttle pickup area at Graceland Plaza in order to get to the Archive Studio. Shuttles will start running at 6:00 p.m. that evening in order to ensure that all participants are seated by 7:00 p.m.

Please Note: For those at Graceland wishing to view the auction and not participate in the bidding, viewing will be available in the Elvis Week Main Stage. Paddles will not be required for this viewing.  If you’re not at Graceland for the auction, you should be able to view via the online Auction at Graceland and on the Graceland Livestream channel
