Polar Express

the Polar Express will be back in 2021

In the interest of public safety, it is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the Depot will be cancelling Polar Express for 2020.

As a community event center, the Depot wants to ensure the health and safety of our staff, partners and the community so we’re taking all necessary precautions to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

The Depot staff and Board of Directors are currently evaluating new dates for this event in 2021. We’re grateful for the community’s continued support and efforts to unite during this trying time. We’ll be announcing new dates as they become available.

For more information and health guidance regarding COVID-19, please visit the CDC or WHO websites. For additional questions, please contact us at the Billings Depot 656.7273

This historic train station will be transformed into a winter wonderland. Children in footie jammies snuggle in on a fuzzy red rug to watch a theatrical production of the Polar Express. Jimmy and the gang make this production exciting as they all interact with the children during the show. At just the right moment, a magical sound and light show heralds the arrival of Santa!

Each child will have their photo taken with Santa and pick a book of their choice to take home! We'll will be handing out cookies and cocoa, and, our own Polar Express engineer will be giving train rides! Everything is included in the ticket price, even the professional photo with Santa. This event is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 8 years old, although older children frequently still enjoy the show.

Tickets go on sale in November on the Depot’s website. Tickets sell out VERY fast, so keep your eyes out for updates on our Facebook and mark your calendars so you can reserve your space. As always, the Depot will be collecting donations to help families in need be able to enjoy some of this Christmas magic. Please use our website to donate to the event.
