The Mesa Arizona Easter Pageant, “Jesus the Christ,” presents the life, ministry, and mission of Jesus Christ through music, dance, and drama. This presentation is for all religions, ages, and cultures. What began as an Easter sunrise service on top of a cotton wagon in 1928, has now become the largest, annual, outdoor Easter Pageant in the world.
“Jesus the Christ” is not a passion play focusing on the crucifixion, rather a celebration of the resurrection of the Savior. Each year, people travel from throughout the world to see this spirit-filled and beautiful one-hour outdoor production.
The pageant is located on the Mesa Temple grass area on the North side of the Mesa Temple Visitors’ Center located at 101 S Lesueur, Mesa, AZ 85204. Click here for directions.
