  • Presented by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 1937, the Hill Cumorah Pageant is an outdoor theatrical representation of scenes from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ presented on Hill Cumorah.
    Event highlights
    1 More than 700 volunteers are cast into 1,200 roles within hours of arriving at the Hill. After just one week of rigorous rehearsals, the outdoor theater production begins. Volunteers come here at their own expense from as close to home as Rochester and as far away as China.
    2 The Pageant is a time of spiritual renewal in the cradle of the Mormon faith.
    3 The volunteer cast will also perform more than 1,800 hours of volunteer community service, landscaping at local parks, painting a bridge, cataloguing at an historic library and clearing trails in Wayne and Ontario counties.  
    Why you should attend
    For more than 70 years, the annual Hill Cumorah Pageant near Palmyra has been a summer tradition for generations of western New Yorkers.
    “Summer in western New York is filled with carnivals, festivals and fairs,” said Dwight Schwendiman, pageant president. “One of the great family activities held here in our region is the Hill Cumorah Pageant.”
