THE ELVIS ENCYCLOPEDIA: Required Reading for the 2009 Tupelo Elvis Festival
Note to Elvis fans: The 2009 Tupelo Elvis Festival will take place on June 5-7, 2009 in Elvis' birthplace of Tupelo, Mississippi. Three days of fun events, including an Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest preliminary, live concerts, a parade and more! If you're planning to attend, you'll first want to check out Adam Victor's monumental celebration of all-things-Elvis, The Elvis Encyclopedia. The Elvis Birthplace and Museum opened in 1971 and is the most visited attraction in Mississippi with over 100,000 visitors every year. Another Tupelo Elvis site worth seeing, according to Victor, is the Tupelo Hardware Store (at the time Booth's Hardware), where Elvis bought his first guitar.
