Pageant of the Masters

Top choice performing arts in Laguna Beach

Hey, did that painting just move? Welcome to the Pageant of the Masters, in which elaborately costumed humans step into painstaking re-creations of famous paintings on an outdoor stage. The pageant began in 1933 as a sideshow to Laguna Beach's Festival of Arts and has been a prime attraction ever since. Our favorite part: watching the paintings deconstruct.
