The historic Billings Depot was one of this community's original gathering places. Thanks to many generous donors, this complex of buildings has been restored to its original splendor of the early 1900′s, and is once again the center of the community! The Depot building offers the perfect spaces to hold both your ceremony and reception, all in one facility. The building is made of three primary spaces: The grand Passenger Station, the spacious Baggage Room, and the beautiful outdoor venue, Gainan's Courtyard. The facility also offers a large private dressing/primping area for the bridal party, and another private dressing room for the groomsmen. We allow any licensed caterer to serve food in our facility, so the sky is the limit! The facility is also in the heart of downtown Billings, so the location is extremely convenient for your guests. A free local shuttle is available to our downtown hotel partner, where your guests receive discounts on their accomodations!

The Passenger Station is the perfect room to host your ceremony, boasting a high, arched ceiling, a beautiful arched window at the west end of the room, the original terrazzo floor, and four Roman columns make it an elegant setting. The room will hold 175 guests for a ceremony. The Passenger Station has a high quality built-in Bose sound system with microphones and a portable CD player.

The Baggage room is the ideal room for holding receptions. It holds up to 300 people seated at tables, and offers a neutral "canvas" that allows for the room to be decorated any way you would like.

Gainan's Courtyard is a beautiful new outdoor venue boasting 19 large planters filled with gorgeous flowers hand-selected by the Gainan family, a unique custom-built backdrop for the ceremony, and most importantly, the Gainan's Courtyard provides the one thing that is inherently lacking when planning an outdoor wedding....a back-up plan for inclement weather! In the event of a disappointing forecast, the guests can be moved right around the corner into the passenger station, and the ceremony can be held indoors, with no hassles or extra expense!

Please call us to schedule your one-on-one private tour and consultation and let us show you why the historic Depot is the perfect place to begin your happily-ever-after!

What can I say? The Billings Depot was the perfect location for my wedding. The Baggage room was the perfect room for a reception. What truly made it so great was the fact that I could decorate how I wanted. I'll never forget it.

We loved having our wedding reception at the Depot. We had ours in the Passanger Station, which is smaller than the other side, but it is so beautiful!!! Wouldn't change a thing!

Our wedding was April 11, 2015 and we booked The Depot back in October or 2013. When we first booked, we met with a gal who is willing to help us and was very responsive to our questions and concerns. I will say this, I believe The Depot prefers you to have Friday weddings as that day is cheaper and you get all day Thursday and Friday to be in there. For a Saturday bride you can only get in Friday if nothing is booked and you pay more. For my sake we were able to get in on Friday, but our linen order was wrong, and we had to go get them to continue decorating. During the last few months we had a meeting to walk through and make final table arrangements. When we went to that meeting, the staff didn't seem to know why we were there. Then a week later we received a phone call asking when were doing this. Also, the bar service was changed and we were never notified. We found out by calling the original bar service contact information when we signed, and were told they no longer contracted through them. A call to The Depot was met with "well the prices are cheaper for wine". My frustration was not being contacted that we had to seek out the information.
