Host Your Event at the Depot!

The Depot is a great place for all kinds of public and private functions, from wedding receptions to company holiday parties, anniversaries, big birthday bashes, talks and conferences, retirement parties, fund raisers, and more. Guests love the central location, the beautiful architecture and courtyard, the spacious main room, convenient parking, the options for dance floor, kitchen, and bar area, -- and the rich history visible down to the terrazzo ornamentation inside. If you'd like to hold your event at this popular place, here's a little basic information.

The facility typically becomes available from after we take down the museum displays in mid-September into the earliest part of May.  As things book fairly quickly, it's well to be in touch as far in advance as you can nail down the dates you can work with; our phone is (406) 222-2300.  Weekends are the most popular, but if one's not available, remember weekdays are an option too.  (During the summer months it is possible to rent the Depot Rotary Park or the courtyard, but we recommend calling us to discuss the particulars.)

Once you know your dates, we can provide a rental agreement form and other general information.  The basic rental is $500/day (small discount available for non-profits), plus extra charges for things like kitchen use ($100, strongly suggested if a caterer is working on site), providing a dance floor ($100), and a nominal hourly rate for the staff person who has to be on site outside of business hours.  There's no time charge if you set up or decorate during normal office hours if that window is unbooked (10-4 weekdays during the off-season), but the hourly rate would apply to anything outside of that (if possible, please try to combine bands' or caterers' visits so we don't have to spend a full day here unnecessarily).  Once you sketch out the floor plan, we'll usually set out tables and chairs as part of the package.





We do not usually list private functions on the web site calendar here, so please do not take it as a guide for availability:  call us instead.  This web site information should be current, but please read and rely on the rental agreement for all specifics.  Most further questions are answered on the printed information we provide you once you contact us (we can suggest a few caterers, but we won't recommend one over another).  

We are always pleased to host you and your guests in support of the Depot Foundation's operations.   As anyone who's attended the many events here knows, the Depot is an exceptionally pretty, historic, convenient, and reasonable place for your event, so we look forward to speaking with you soon!
