The Cow Palace has been the site of an unfathomable variety of events. Concerts for The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, and Elvis? Check! The Great Dickens Christmas Fair? Check! Roller Derby, Heavyweight Boxing Championships, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police? Check, check, check!

The original intention behind building the  Cow Palace was create a permanent space to exhibit livestock, which is where it derives its name. And right now it’s stepping up to house livestock once again.
