Whatever the time of year - Nauvoo has entertainment to offer. From May to August, the entertainment schedule in Nauvoo increases with Sunset on the Mississippi along with plays and vignettes by Young Performing Missionaries. Tickets are necessary and free for any show that is indoors and not necessary for any show that is outdoors.
Performing all summer, these authentic bagpipers march through the main street of Nauvoo and it's historic district regularly, taking time to teach and give demonstrations for visitors. The spirit and music that fills the air is unforgettable.
Historic Nauvoo is home to several interactive sites that are ideal for children and families - Pioneer Pastimes, the Family Living Center, the Scovil Bakery, the Blacksmith Shop, and the Brickyard are examples of fun for the entire family!
