Come to Nauvoo to see the Nauvoo Pageant

July - August (See dates)


The Nauvoo Pageant celebrates the
legacy of the early Latter-Day Saints.

A wonderful stage performance narrated by Parley P. Pratt, the pageant walks the audience throughout the footsteps and times of the prophetic mission of Joseph Smith and honors the sacrifice, faith and courage of those Saints who gave their all to build Nauvoo and a temple to their God.

Enjoy the performance of authentic hymns and folksongs, lively music and dances, and tender moments that touch the joy these early Saints found in living Christ's gospel. Through words taken from journals, sermons and historic records of the period, the Nauvoo Pageant invites all to feel the powerful testimonies of these early faithful Saints.
