Drive The Blues Away: Viva Las Vegas

Friday April 03

8:00 PM  –  11:00 PM


The King. The Cadillacs. The Cocktails. Roll the dice and say “I do”, as America’s Car Museum will be transforming into the ACM Strip on Friday, April 3rd! Enjoy a one night in Vegas with a Battle of the Buffets, inspired cocktails, Elvis lookalike competition, casino games, and even a “little white chapel” where Elvis will be marrying couples and renewing vows. Bands include: Lady Gaga cover band “Poker Face” and Elvis impersonator Danny Vernon, recognized by Elvis Presley Enterprises as one of the best in the world!

Battle of the Buffets: Four local chefs will battle it out for the best buffet, with attendees voting for their favorite Sin City-inspired food.. Restaurants to be announced soon!

Cocktails: From Cosmos to Frozen Hurricanes, Vegas is known for its creative and tantalizing cocktails and you can taste them in Tacoma! Beverage list coming soon!

Attire: Elvis will be marrying couples and renewing vows at our little white chapel! So come in wedding attire, tacky bridesmaid dresses, velour suits or whatever says Vegas wedding to you! We also encourage people to come dressed as their favorite Elvis (Hillbilly Cat, leathers, or, of course, bejeweled jumpsuit), and join in the Elvis look-alike competition on our main stage!

Cadillacs: Elvis Presley bought and owned many Cadillacs in his short lifetime - up to 200 by some estimates. America’s Car Museum’s exhibit, Cadillac – The Standard of the World, tells the story of the brand’s inception and vaunted reputation for designing and building some of the finest, and most desirable automobiles in the world.
