What will the weather be like during Elvis Week in Memphis?
Elvis Week takes place in the heart of August in Memphis, so – no surprise – it’s going to be hot. Temperatures from August 9-17 are expected to reach daytime highs in the mid to high 90s, with lows in the mid to high 70s. If you plan on going out to Graceland (or anywhere else in Memphis that week), be sure to bring your sunscreen and drink plenty of water.
Can you watch Elvis Week events online?
For those who aren’t in Memphis or just want to enjoy the festivities from the comfort of their own homes, this year there will be another Virtual Elvis Week. This online experience will include live concert streams and conversations with special guests. Live programming will feature Elvis in concert on the big screen, the All the King’s Men Jam session and the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest, as well as a full day of Elvis conversations. All events will be broadcast in HD and high quality audio. All shows will also be available on demand for seven days after the performance.
There are three tiers of Virtual Elvis Week passes. The all-access Elvis Super Fan Pass is $225, the Elvis Legacy Pass is $130, and the Elvis Tribute Artist Pass is also $130. To buy, go to virtualelvisweek.com.
