Between 1907 and 1915 the original Matsqui hall was built.
The hall was a Pole Barn type with a roof but no walls or flooring.
Then June 19, 1931 – plans were made to tear down the old hall and rebuild. The Harmanacias Orchestra were willing to put on a series of open air dances with proceeds going to the hall. Thus was born the dance hall that is there today.
This is a real 1930s dance hall! 3500 sq feet of open, sprung hardwood, horse hair dance floor! 30 foot ceilings! Stage! Built in snack bar! Kitchen! Potentially a Coffee Bar! Future child care offered!
Cost: 18$ at the door and online special! ($12 until March 27, 2019)
