This year it will be held on June 1-4, 2017, to celebrate the life and music of Tupelo’s native son, Elvis Presley.
The artwork was created by Tupelo resident Sue Scruggs. The artist created a Hawaiian-themed image that includes a variety of bright and tropical blues, greens and pinks accompanied with a center-focus on the guitar. The vintage inspired image reflects Elvis’ movie years and the 90-minute special Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite.
Scruggs, longtime Tupelo resident, trained in the impressionist style of art in Como, Italy. She has a degree in art from David Lipscomb College in Nashville, Tennessee. The Tupelo Elvis Festival is entering its nineteenth year. The festival has been named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism society
