All Activities are FREE of charge - No Tickets Required
The Nauvoo Country Fair is a favorite activity for young and young at heart. Guests enjoy 20 different 1840's style games and activities hosted by family cast members dressed in period costumes. In 2007 a station was added with computers where guests can enter information to access genealogical connections to the main characters represented in the pageant such as Joseph, Emma & Hyrum Smith, Brigham Young, Parley P. Pratt & others. The majority of the pageant guests are surprised to see they are related to one or more of the pageant characters. Service projects to donate supplies are accepted on behalf of the pageant's country fair each year. See Service Project Opportunities
