This rare, colorful invitation for the 1971 Summer Festival opens to read, “Elvis and the Las Vegas Hilton The International Hotel take pleasure in inviting you and a guest to join us at the opening show of Elvis’ Summer Festival / August 9, 1971 / Cocktails at your table 7:30 p.m. / Dinner at 8:00 p.m. Show at 10:15 p.m. / RSVP Envelope Enclosed.” The invitation for the second annual Elvis Summer Festival in Vegas sports the bright International Hotel logo colors with a circular cutout on the front through which Elvis can be seen singing. The invite opens to another full-color image of Elvis on the inside left, and an image of Elvis singing on the right above the invitation. The white back has “Las Vegas Hilton / The International Hotel” printed on the lower portion. This was the period the hotel was making the transition to the Las Vegas Hilton name from the earlier International Hotel. This Summer Festival invitation for the ultimate dinner and a show is a rare commodity only further enhanced by the inclusion of the complimentary copy of the 1971 Souvenir Menu that features Elvis singing against a background of pictures of him in concert in a curtained stage setting on the cover. The invitation measures 8 by 5 inches (20.32 x 12.7 cm), the menu measures 12 by 9 inches (30.48 x 22.86 cm) and the pair is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



Both pieces present with little wear. The menu has some small stains on the back. Near Mint condition, with invite a little better.
