The Augusta Dance Pavilion was originally created to serve as the perfect place to have outdoor dances during the Augusta Heritage Center’s annual summer weeklong workshops. This popular celebration of heritage music and crafts attracts several hundred participants annually, including public dances in the Pavilion that are enjoyed by the entire community. The Augusta Dance Pavilion has become a great open air space for student dances and activities, even concerts. With its wood floor, band stand and bare bulb lights, it is reminiscent of having old–time square dances in an open air dance hall. The beauty of its woodland setting makes it magical place to experience music and dance all night.
