Catch a River by the Tale, the 2018 River Clyde Pageant, features a whole new structure and story, using the river and surrounding landscape as the stage for a spectacular, magical performance on land and water. The 2018 Pageant is a single-site performance, with the audience seated on the hillside of the Little Victory Microfarms, overlooking the River Clyde.

There are five shows only, and audience members must reserve a spot online PRIOR to the performances, as tickets are limited. No tickets will be sold at the door.

The River Clyde Pageant is ADMISSION BY DONATION. You can donate when booking tickets on our online reservation system. You may also donate at the end of the performances.

Audience members should bring picnic blankets to sit on during the show. The seating area is on a slope, so a blanket is best. A few chairs will be available on-site for those with mobility issues or hearing limitations.

Runtime is approximately 75 minutes.

Each night’s performance concludes with a sit-down dinner in a field on the site. Food will be prepared by Chef Emily Wells and the staff at The Mill Restaurant, and served family-style at the long tables. The meal will have vegetarian and gluten-free options.

IMPORTANT: We are aiming to make this a zero-waste meal, and therefore we ask audience members to bring their own cutlery and plates.

This is a VERY family-friendly event.
Please do not bring your dogs or other pets.

Plan to arrive in New Glasgow by 7:00pm to allow time for parking & walking to the Pageant site.  Attendants will be present to guide you to parking spots and direct you to the site. The performance begins at 7:30. We encourage audience members to carpool if possible!

There are multiple options for parking. Parking is NOT available at The Mill but IS available at the following locations:

  • Upper lot at The Gardens of Hope (on Route 224)

  • Highfield Construction (across from The Mill on Route 13)

  • 2852 New Glasgow Road (orange house)

  • 2865 New Glasgow Road (white house)

If it rains, The River Clyde Pageant cannot take place. If rain is forecast, a final call about whether or not the Pageant is going ahead will be emailed to all attendees by 4pm on the day of the show.

Because the Pageant is sold out, we are unable to reschedule tickets for cancelled shows. We can offer you a refund, or you can donate to support next year’s event.

Wear appropriate clothing for evening outdoor weather. Bug spray is recommended

While the show is seated, arrival to the Pageant site requires a good deal of walking outdoors on uneven ground. Because of this, the Pageant is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. For those with limited mobility, a golf cart will be available at the box office to help bring you to the site.
