Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
Constructed especially for the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition, Civic Auditorium, also known then as the Million Dollar Exposition Hall, proved to be a big hit. The classic four-story Beaux-Arts structure, which seats 7,000 people, occupies an entire city block at Civic Center with grace and style and is privileged to have a place on the National Historical Register.
City wide celebrations ranging from the big party in 1937 in honor of the newly completed Golden Gate Bridge to current major events like the San Francisco Jazz Festival kick off party have been centered here, and Civic Auditorium's musical past is unmatched. Besides playing periodic host to the San Francisco Opera, megastars such as Elvis Presley, Madonna, the Rolling Stones, and Ella Fitzgerald have performed on its stage. The building is available and ideal for conventions or private events.
