Celebrations

Over a century ago, this beautiful historic building was built as the centerpiece of downtown Billings, serving as the venue of choice for many of the most important visitors in Billings’ history, including numerous presidents, governors, Hollywood celebrities, and even visiting royalty.

Today, the Depot has been lovingly restored and plays host to dozens of Billings’ events like fundraisers, political rallies & receptions, dance recitals, holiday parties, family reunions, non-profit events, musical performances and much, much more.

The Depot is comprised of four main public spaces: The beautiful Passenger Station, the spacious Baggage Room, two outdoor courtyards and a back patio with historic walking tour.

  • Tables and chairs

  • Wire grid on ceiling in Baggage Room for décor, lighting and power
  • Two bars for beverage service
  • Loading zone can accommodate small to large transportation
