Event description


Get ready, because the Polar Express is coming!

Once again, the fabulous story of the Polar Express comes to life in the Historic Billings Depot for 7 shows, December 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th, 2019!

This historic train station will be transformed into a winter wonderland. Children in footie jammies snuggle in on a fuzzy red rug to watch a theatrical production of the Polar Express. Jimmy and the gang make this production exciting as they interact with the children during the show. At just the right moment, a magical sound and light show heralds the arrival of Santa!

Each child will have their photo taken with Santa by Littles & Bigs Photography, and get a holiday book of their choice. Wise Wonders Children's Museum, Zoo Montana and SCRaP will all be here to have fun with everyone! Lucky’s Market and Passages will be handing out cookies and cocoa, and, our own Polar Express engineer will be giving miniature train rides around the Depot campus! Everything is included in the ticket price, even the professional photo with Santa. This event is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 8 years old, although older children frequently still enjoy the show.

Tickets go on sale November 4th on the Depot’s website. Tickets sell out VERY fast, so keep your eyes out for updates on our Facebook page and mark your calendars so you can reserve your space. As always, the Depot will be collecting donations to help families in need be able to enjoy some of this Christmas magic. Please use our website to donate to the event.

NEW FOR 2019! December 8th at 9am is Breakfast with Santa. This special treat is separate from The Polar Express shows. Sponsored by Pizza Ranch, kids will enjoy eating breakfast at Santa's table, asking him questions about the North Pole and hand delivering their letters.


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, your tickets will be on a list at the door.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
