Discover The Magic of Christmas at Graceland
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.
Graceland sparkles at Christmas, join us and see for yourself! Christmas kicks off on November 21, 2019 with our annual Graceland Christmas Lights ceremony!
