Welcome to the Nauvoo and British Pageants!

We are thrilled to return with an enthusiastic and talented cast to share the stories of Nauvoo with you during July. Be sure to download the new Historic Nauvoo app to help you navigate the daily schedule for shows, tours, and the evening Pageants. There is a lot to explore on the app while you wait for a show to begin.

As you come to the Pageant, be sure to walk on sidewalks and designated walkways to keep you safe from traffic and other obstacles. The Pageant’s official newspaper will be shared with visitors on site. Anyone passing out other material beyond the Pageant grounds is not affiliated with the Pageant or the Church; use discretion in accepting materials. Please also exercise caution if approached by a protester. Do not engage in conversation. We suggest you politely ignore disruptions and enter the Pageant grounds ready to enjoy the evening.

Welcome To Historic Nauvoo!

We are excited for the start of our 2022 summer season. Take time to explore the website for updates to how our tours and performances operate. If you are in town, please download our new app to help you navigate the sites, find tickets to shows and wagon tours, and provide feedback.

If this is your first visit since before 2020, take a look at our new exhibits in the Visitors’ Center, or join the Temple City tour to see newly restored homes, and see what’s new in the Family Living Center. Keep in mind that the streets in the historic district are public streets (not big sidewalks); traffic will be moving on the roads. Please stay on walkways or to the side of the road. If you have questions, ask a missionary! They can help.

Both presidents join other leaders in encouraging all women (and anyone) to find someone to serve in honor of this anniversary. For ideas, go to
