Located on the Festival of Arts grounds is one of the most unique theatrical productions in the world, the Pageant of the Masters. Watch real people be magically transformed into life-sized re-creations of famous works of art. A live narrator guides you through the story of each living picture accompanied by a full orchestra. Shows are nightly. There is nothing like it anywhere... only in Laguna Beach.

Hard to believe what you are seeing. The presentations appear to be a painted picture and even with opera glasses you couldn’t tell it was populated with real people. Then they set up a picture in front of the audience so you could see how...More

Mind boggling! Beautiful venue - come early to shop the art venders, enjoy live music & quality snacks/dinner. Rent binoculars - its worth the $10. You'll pay for parking or use the trolley shuttle.
