Welcome to Friends of the Cow Palace

Now celebrating 75 years! ...Everybody has a story about the Cow Palace—stories as diverse, inspiring, and often eccentric as Northern California itself. That’s what you’d expect for Northern California’s gathering spot since the 1930s.


From its start in the depths of the Great Depression to today, the Cow Palace has hosted the famous and infamous, traditional and rebellious, serious and hilarious, local and international. With a winning combination of size, affordability, location, convenient parking and history, the Cow Palace is an invaluable “People’s Palace” now and for the future. Together we’ll keep it a vibrant part of the Bay Area for decades to come.
