Hill Cumorah Pageant: July 11-12, 15-19, 2014
The Hill Cumorah Pageant began in 1920 when a small group of missionaries from New York celebrated Pioneer Day at the Joseph Smith Farm. The pageant has only grown since, and now takes place each year on the actual Hill Cumorah with the help of hundreds of volunteers each year. It focuses on events in the Book of Mormon, climaxing with Christ’s visit to the Americas and ending with Joseph Smith receiving the plates.
