I have attended the Pageant several times over 25 years, a must-see event. Attended again this past week, wonderful as always. While the visual aspect of the pageant is magical, what is not always mentioned is the 25-piece (my estimate) orchestra that plays each evening....More

To see a painting or a work of art brought to life and presented the way they do is just amazing. It is a great time and something I will always remember. Looking forward to hopefully see again.

If you’ve never experienced Laguna’s iconic Pageant of the Masters, you will be blown away. It’s so completely different and so realistic that it’s almost impossible to believe that you’re looking at actual human beings and not paintings! I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Undescribable. You can try to tell people what this is but honestly they won’t understand it. Every summer Laguna Beach puts on this magnificent show. Don’t miss it. Art comes to life.

All done by volunteers, this is the most unique "show" you will ever see. Sets are created so that when the actors appear on stage (staying completely still for a couple of minutes) a painting (for example) is faithfully rendered in 2D. How this amazing...More

Sat in the middle. I would recommend going if you like art and are a stickler for detail. Great date idea.

There are NO boarding facilities at the Pageant. You would have to at Kennel right across from the Pageant.

I am not sure what time the grounds open but I am sure you can call. The art work is beautiful and last time they had student art.
