Graceland Releases Statement On Elvis Week Security

(GRACELAND STATEMENT) - This year we have updated our security measures at Graceland for Elvis Week, as we anticipate very large crowds for this 40th anniversary.  In order to keep everyone safe and ensure an enjoyable and meaningful event for all, we have worked closely with local, state and federal security authorities to establish new procedures that have been widely used across the US.

An Elvis Week Property Pass wristband now allows guests to enter all non-ticketed parts of Graceland property throughout Elvis Week, including the Elvis Week Entertainment Tent, Ticket Pavilion, restaurants and select gift shops, plus free parking after 5 pm. This wristband is included with a ticket to Elvis Presley’s Memphis during Elvis Week (our lowest priced tour ticket).  Since the vast majority of our guests take our tour as part of their visit during Elvis Week, there is no additional cost to them.

During the Candlelight Vigil evening, we invite everyone to join us on Elvis Presley Blvd. in front of the Mansion. Guests are welcome to stay in this area throughout the evening to watch the Candlelight Vigil ceremony, and observe the procession without a Property Pass.

As with all other Elvis Week events on the Graceland campus, to join the procession up to Meditation Garden, guests will need their Elvis Week Property Pass wristband. For guests who join us for Vigil night only and wish to join the procession, they will be able to purchase an Elvis Presley’s Memphis tour ticket that evening and receive their Property Pass.

Graceland provides free walk-ups to Meditation Garden daily throughout the year from 7:30 am to 8:30 am, including the morning of the Candlelight Vigil (8/15), and every evening of Elvis Week, except Vigil evening, from 7 pm to 9 pm.
