Laguna Beach and The Pageant of the Masters


Presented in an outdoor theatre in Laguna Beach, The Pageant of the Masters uses live people to re-create well-known pieces of sculpture and art. The staging, the costuming, and the effects created by make-up and lighting make it surrealistic and words fail to describe the pageant to others. You have to see it to believe it!

Daily Itinerary

Day 1

Your tour begins with a morning flight to Southern California. Upon arrival, depart for Corona Del Mar and The Sherman Library and Gardens for a Sunday Champagne Brunch. Ranging from desert regions to exotic vegetation, the gardens of living plants are displayed amidst a park-like setting of fountains, sculptures, and seasonal flowers. Following brunch and garden visit, a short ride takes us to our hotel in Newport for a two night stay. With full-service amenities, plus Fashion Island Shopping Center and variety of restaurants within walking distance, the Marriott provides a convenient, well-located and pleasant stay. Please note: the hotel is not on or within walking distance to the beach. You will likely have a view of the distant beach from your room. Having said this, it is a beautiful place to stay and has been our exclusive Pageant hotel for over a decade. Marriott Newport Beach Hotel & Spa – 2 nights (BR)

Day 2

This morning we depart for Mission San Juan Capistrano founded in 1776 by Father Junipero Serra. With the chapel thought to be one of the oldest buildings in California, mission docents will be our guides through the historic buildings and gardens. Enjoy some exploration on your own before returning to the hotel to ready for your evening in Laguna Beach and The Pageant of the Masters. A tour of the Festival of Arts is followed by dinner at the adjacent Terra Restaurant and additional time to browse the activities and art show before the pageant begins at 8:30pm. Reserved Loge seating in the amphitheater provides excellent viewing. (D)
