The festivities kick-off on Saturday, July 2nd at the Soundstage at Graceland with an Elvis Tribute Concert starring 2021 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest winner Pat Dunn. Joined by the EAS band and back-up singers, the audience will feel the power of Elvis on stage. Dunn is an incredibly talented showman when it comes to paying tribute to Elvis. His award winning background includes starring roles in Broadway productions of "Phantom of the Opera" and "Les Misérables" which means his performance as Elvis will knock your socks off as he takes the stage in his inaugural headlining performance at Graceland.

For those seeking the ultimate Graceland experience, Graceland's VP of Archives and Exhibitions Angie Marchese will lead an after-hours, two-hour Hidden Graceland Tour at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Limited to just 10 guests, this private tour of Elvis' iconic home will feature the sites and stories that made the Mansion the King's castle. This exclusive experience will provide a glimpse of hidden areas and items not seen on regular tours – and will feature a special photo op inside Graceland Mansion.

America's birthday celebration continues the 3rd of July at The Guest House at Graceland with The Great American Sunday Gospel Brunch featuring The Blackwood Brothers and Billy Blackwood. An early influence on Elvis, The Blackwood Quartet embraces their long lineage of inspirational music through Billy who has been touring with the Quartet since his teens. The brunch will feature delicious Southern specialties.

A special screening for package holders is the "Elvis and the USS Arizona" PBS documentary at 3:00 p.m. in The Guest House Theater. The film tells the surprising story of how Elvis helped to establish the USS Arizona memorial in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Elvis' fundraising concert drew public attention to the plight and helped galvanize efforts to finish the USS Arizona Memorial as it stands today. The documentary, narrated by Jim Nantz with Kyle Chandler, originally aired on Veteran's Day but is being screened with special permission from the World War II Foundation.

Celebrate the Fourth in the way only Graceland can, with an Elvis-themed fireworks spectacular. The evening is hosted by DJ Argo of SiriusXM Elvis Radio, who will share unique stories of Elvis and Graceland. After the sun sets, it's time to celebrate America as the sky lights up with an unforgettable fireworks display set to Elvis music.

Free Admission includes parking at Graceland's main parking lot and access into Elvis Presley's Memphis Ticket Plaza. In the Plaza you can shop at one of Graceland's gift shops and purchase beverages, snacks or dinner at Vernon's restaurant. Tickets to go inside the exhibits and museums located in Elvis Presley's Memphis are available as a separate purchase.
