Pageant of the Masters is a must for anyone who appreciates the arts and the outdoors. Fantastic way to spend a summer evening. Great place to take visitors. Binoculars enhance the experience significantly.

We have enjoyed the consistent quality of this wonderful show on almost an annual basis since the early 2000s. It never disappoints and has become more adventurous without changing the fundamentals of the amazing still life live displays. I envy first timers to this surprising...More

The shows are good - been many years. Unfortunately, a number of years ago, when tickets were hard to get, the pageant crammed small seats together. The person next to you is literally sitting in your lap. Very uncomfortable. Sadly, a very poor experience.

Book way ahead, bring a jacket, and binoculars to see the incredible details of the living art. Everyone should see this at least once. Tour the fine artwork on the grounds of the Pageant before the evening show.

It's so fun to see art such as paintings and sculptures transformed into real life dioramas. And, if you're a fan of "Arrested Development", you'll have a deeper appreciation for that art!

The Pageant of the Masters is hard to describe, it MUST BE SEEN!!! Cast members put themselves in paintings and pose without moving. Picture a favorite painting that has people in it and then picture this with real people, not moving and barely breathing!! The...More

You can bring a bottle of wine into the art/ pre-concert area. Many locals bring food & wine before the Pageant starts & stroll through the art & listen to the concert. There is also food & wine for sale. However, once you... More

Upper tier, weekday is the best pricing and often when the promotions are offered. I actually prefer the upper tier because I am short so there is generally no risk of having my view blocked, it feels rather private because... More

There are a few lots just north of the show in the Canyon, and in and around the village. You can also park and take the free shuttle to the show as well. Many folks find parking, dine in the village and shuttle, for walk... More
