In 1922, George Conley, a local architect and builder, designed and helped to financially fund the costs for the erection of the new Pavilion. Although dances were being held at the Pavilion, it was ‘officially’ opened during the 1923 Old Boys and Girls Reunion, between July 16th to July 23rd of 1923.

During the 1920’s dances were held as often as four times weekly during the months of July and August. There was a cost of 15 cents to enter the building, and 5 cents to go onto the dance floor. According to some, there was also a booth where a young lady could ‘rent’ a paper dress for the evening, as shorts were not permitted on the dance floor.

In 2000, The Friends of the Pavilion assumed the lease for the Kincardine Pavilion. As a non-profit entity, the Volunteer Board of Director’s ensures that all events hosted, and held at the Pavilion provide financial stability to ensure the viability and the future of the Kincardine Pavilion both as a historic, and cherished venue.
