Billings Depot is a historic wedding venue situated in the heart of downtown Billings, Montana. This spectacular campus was built in 1909 and served as a train station and centerpiece of the old west town. During its heyday, the station housed important figures such as American presidents, European royalty, and Hollywood celebrities. The property is now a nonprofit that has been lovingly restored and hosts private events and weddings in its opulent and elegant interior.
Facilities and Capacity
Billings Depot has two dramatic indoor spaces where you can hold your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The most iconic of these is the Passenger Station, which can accommodate 266 people and boasts vaulted ceilings, Roman-esque columns, and a vintage ticket window. During the festivities, this ballroom’s signature high-arched windows will bathe the terrazzo tile floors, and your guests, in natural light. Receptions can also be hosted in the Baggage Room, a sweeping banquet hall that seats as many as 300 guests. This room features original exposed white brick walls, hardwood floors, and draping market lighting that create a romantic and retro ambiance. Outside both spaces are terraces where you can enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with loved ones. A brick patio also runs out back and overlooks the railroad tracks and historic mall building, The Post. In addition, two get-ready suites and a fully equipped catering kitchen are located right off of the grand march hallway for your ease and convenience.
Rental of Billings Depot comes with a number of amenities and services. These include state-of-the-art sound systems, WiFi throughout the buildings, decorating time if available, and an event coordinator to help run the wedding day. The venue also offers a detailed list of recommended vendors in the area for everything from photographers and florists to DJs and caterers. You are also welcome to bring in your own preferred vendors. The downtown of Billings is easily walkable and provides numerous hotels and dining options for all your out-of-town guests.

The Historic Depot is an amazing venue to have a wedding and reception. Located on the Historic Montana Avenue with many fabulous bars, restaurants, and shops, and just a few blocks from great hotel accommodations. Staff are great to work with - book early and check out their new Gainans Courtyard for an outdoor ceremony.
