To be clear, we planned our entire week in LA Plantation country and Natchez Spring Pilgrimage to coincide with ability to attend the Tableaux. I have mixed feelings about the 2016 performance of the Natchez Tableaux. I first saw the production in 2009, and was...More

Great concert during Art Weekend. The place was packed. Every seat was a good seat. Look forward to attending future events.

We went to the Confederate Pageant held in Natchez during the Spring, and it was an enjoyable event. Sadly the auditorium wasn't very filled with tourist, however if you want to experience a history of old antebellum dancing of days ago, then book your ticket...More

Scenes of Natchez past are presented through the efforts of approximately 300 residents of Natchez. The city auditorium provides a good setting for the presentation with seating on three sides -- box seats on the floor and elevated seats behind. There's probably not a bad...More
