The Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant welcomes you to it’s annual summer event that brings a Laura Ingalls Wilder book to life on the De Smet outdoor stage.
The Little Town on the Prairie an autobiographical children's novel and published in 1941, the seventh of nine books in the Little House series.
As twilight falls and the leaves of the giant cottonwoods that Pa planted rattle in the evening breeze, the classic story is presented on the open, wide prairie where Laura’s stories actually happened.
This is your opportunity to ‘Experience the ‘Wilder’ life this Summer!
The Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant is set on the open prairie just southeast of De Smet. On a nearby hill, the cottonwoods that Pa planted rattle their leaves in the evening breeze. A meadowlark often sings its song perched on a nearby wire fence. Horse- drawn wagons give visitors rides around the pageant grounds.
The Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant is 45 years old and is presented by a volunteer cast and crew. It takes dedication and many volunteers to put the pageant on the stage year after year.
This year's presentation, "These Happy Golden Years", is a heart-warming story of Laura Ingalls and her family's joys and struggles as they settle the Dakota Prairie. Please join us as we bring this unforgettable story to life!
Gates open at 6:00 PM & Show begins at 8:00 PM.
