Northern California Irish Wolfhound Club

NCIWC is dedicated to promoting the continued well being and preservation of  Irish Wolfhounds by example and education. NCIWC  sponsors many activities for this purpose. The activities range from specialties and matches to beach walks and public events, such as Celtic festivals and parades.

Board meetings are held four times per year. An annual general membership meeting is held in June each year.  Members and guests are invited to attend; however, only board members may vote on business.

It’s not too early to put next year’s specialties on  your calendar… October 14, 15, 16, 2022, Yolo County Fairgrounds in Woodland, CA. (new location, back to our original dates)

San Francisco St. Patrick’s Day Parade


A long-standing tradition of the Northern California Irish Wolfhound Club has been to participate in the San Francisco St. Patrick’s Day Parade, sponsored by the United Irish Societies. Sadly, the parade was cancelled two years in a row due to the Pandemic that has rocked the world. And although we participated in a tremendous virtual parade last year, it just wasn’t the same as walking down Market St. and sharing our fantastic hounds with a loving and welcoming crowd of spectators.

WONDERFUL NEWS! The United Irish Societies has a parade permit in hand. They have even named a Grand Marshall for the parade. The parade that we all hope will go forward on Saturday, March the 12th. Truly fantastic news. As of this writing the Omicron variant seems to be waning. Now it’s our turn to celebrate our long-standing tradition once again.

So, save the date, shake out your parade spirit, wake up your hounds and let’s go have a parade in that great city by the bay. San Francisco is still there waiting.

More specific information and instructions (gathering point, parade position etc.) will follow on Facebook and on the club website as soon as we receive them.
