The Egyptian Pavilion, at the "A Century of Progress" exhibition, was celebrated on 6 June by serving tea in the pavilion all afternoon. It was built just north of Hollywood on the North Island by Nicolas G. Khalil Bey, Egypt's chargé d'affaires.

The exhibition, which features replicas of statues, thrones and other relics unearthed from the tombs of the pharaohs, plus samples of contemporary Egyptian craftsmanship, is housed in a building that combines Egyptian and Exhibition motifs.
