Easter Pageant

The Mesa Arizona Easter Pageant, known as the largest outdoor Easter Pageant in the world, will again offer families and individuals across Arizona and neighboring states an opportunity to celebrate the Easter season with an inspiring portrayal of the life, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Pageant presents the true meaning of Easter portrayed in drama, music and dance, presented on a five-story stage with a cast and crew of more than 900 volunteers, who perform or work behind the scenes in various capacities to make the pageant a reality.

This year, mark your calendars and plan to bring a friend to the English performances, which will be April 9 through 11 and 15 through 19, or the Spanish performance on April 12. ASL translation will be available April 9 through 12 as well. In addition, the organizing committee encourages all to like the Pageant’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/MesaEasterPageant), share it with a friend and be sure to check out the event page and indicate that you will be attending.

An estimated 80,000 people in the community attend the free, 65-minute production each year. The Pageant is performed in front of the Visitors’ Center on the Mesa Temple grounds at 525 East Main St. in Mesa. For more details, visit the website at EasterPageant.org
