50 years ago, in 1962, 
we celebrated the Seattle World's Fair.  
50 years ago, the King of Rock and Roll
visited Seattle and made the film
"It Happened at the World's Fair".

In honor of these two momentous occasions,
Bumbershoot 2012 - Seattle's Music & Arts Festival
is proud to announce the Return of The King to the Seattle World's Fair
and the Seattle Center in an ELVISTRAVAGANZA of art, music and performance.

Saturday through Monday, Sept 1st, 2nd and 3rd see The King in all his many personas at ELVISTRAVAGANZA!  See them all, the handsome young singer, the King of Rock and Roll,
the Army private, the Hollywood Movie Star, the Hawaiian E.P., and the later Las Vegas King. 

The story of Mr. Presley is a heroic tale of lost innocence, of success, excess, and the chronicle of
the rise and fall of an American icon, and his final redemption. Celebrate legendary royalty with us!

Join us Labor Day weekend Sept 1-3, 2012 at Seattle Center Pavilion for ELVISTRAVAGANZA!

The special Mayor's Arts Awards Day and free public preview
and artist reception party for ELVISTRAVAGANZA! is on
