A dramatic 11-foot ceiling complete with original exposed wood beams enhances the space with a raw, industrial look not lacking in character or charm. Blank walls with an easy-to-use gallery hanging system fashion a customizable canvas perfect for bringing your vision to life. Large picture windows illuminate the venue with natural light and warmth. Tasteful wood floors await to be turned into a dance floor for your celebration or an aisle for your big day. A full-service catering kitchen awaits to name you host of the year. Located in the heart of historical South Billings and close to downtown, The Gathering Place welcomes you and your guests with open arms.
The Gathering Place is a brand new event space in the newly renovated Community Leadership and Development Inc. building. CLDI has been in the Billings community since 1981, and has many different aspects including youth ministry, rental properties, and a sober living home for women and their children.
Consistent with our ministry, CLDI strives to meet and serve individuals and organizations where they stand financially and our fees are determined accordingly.
