The date of this particular visit was actually in 1992. This is an annual event that runs for a week in late March and early April each year telling the story of the Natchez Indians and includes the Big Maypole performance for older children and the Little Maypole for preschoolers. My son was a part of the Little Maypole when... More

Great concert during Art Weekend. The place was packed. Every seat was a good seat. Look forward to attending future events.

I was prepared to be a bit snarky about this, but it was captivating. Even my jaded 13-year-old son enjoyed it. Sure, it has its hokey moments, but the costumes are lovely and the dancing very well done. Plus, the thought that this community can put this on every year, with so many roles to fill, is worth celebrating. It... More

I like the way the young people do the pageant and they do a nice job. We had never seen it before, and have liked all the special events they have at pilgrimage time.We also liked the satire play they had and the "road to freedom" singers.

We went to the Confederate Pageant held in Natchez during the Spring, and it was an enjoyable event. Sadly the auditorium wasn't very filled with tourist, however if you want to experience a history of old antebellum dancing of days ago, then book your ticket for this event.

Scenes of Natchez past are presented through the efforts of approximately 300 residents of Natchez. The city auditorium provides a good setting for the presentation with seating on three sides -- box seats on the floor and elevated seats behind. There's probably not a bad seat except maybe in the far corners. We purchased our tickets at the visitor center... More

I have tried for four trips to get to see the Natchez Pageant and finally was able to get in. It was so worth the wait! This fulfilled all my Scarlett O'Hara dreams. We had side section seats reserved but were upgraded by an invitation from the President of the presiding garden club that night, so we had floor seats.... More

You must see this. Living in Texas now but growing up in Wisconsin it was very interesting to see how the South lived in the antebellum years. They take this very seriously and it shows. Loved the gentlemen singing Ole Man River.

Take a step back in time in this live movie and play performance by local people that live in the Natchez community. Old and young alike love the pageant as a story from long ago unravels. Make sure to dress up! This is a formal event and so much fun to go to and to dress up for an affair... More
