Revel is the next phase of Taste of Billings and will be the very first experiential event for Billings, allowing attendees to create their own adventure and decide for themselves how much fun they want to have.   Watch for the next Revel in April, 2020!

Revel will highlight 11 teams each featuring 1 business, 1 chef, 1 artist and 1 butler. These teams will be creating unique dining environments called Coves, using the business as the theme and incorporating all 5 senses into the space. Maybe you’ll be dining in an elegant cave environment brought to you by Cloud Peak Energy or a cove dripping with ink by our Allegra team. Maybe one course of the meal is be served blindfolded and your chef describes what flavors you’ll experience or a projection artist helps you visually see time. Each cove is different and highlights the talents and creativity of the team in ways you’ve never considered.

The most luxurious, spectacular event of the year! REVEL is the first of its kind allowing each REVELers to create their own unique experience. You decide how much fun you have. This is Carnival meets Black Tie Formal.

Revel is still the Depot’s largest fundraiser. As a community owned nonprofit, the Depot raises funds to help preserve and protect the four historic buildings on the Depot campus and ensure they remain open and accessible to the community.  This event will continue to function as our largest fundraiser but as an event center, we feel we should be leading the charge when it comes to creating events that surprise, delight and continue to make memories in this historic space. All donations from sponsors, partners and guests contribute to preserving these precious buildings for future generations.
