Description

Once again, the fabulous story of the “Polar Express” is coming to life in the Historic Billings Depot! You and your children will be dazzled by both the story, told in a children’s theater production, along with a “magical” visit from Santa!

This historic train station will be transformed into a winter wonderland where dozens of children in footie jammies will snuggle in on a fuzzy red rug surrounding the stage, where a children’s theatrical production will enthrall everyone with the wonderful story of Jimmy and the gang in the Polar Express. At just the right moment, a magical sound and light show heralds the arrival of Santa on a “magical train” bound for the North Pole!

Santa stops at the Billings Depot for a visit, singing Christmas carols and taking professional pictures with each child. Santa even has a present for each kiddo! Each year, children receive a special gift from Santa to take home and share with their family. This year, the child will be able to take home a 25th anniversary hardcover edition of the Polar Express book (or one of several alternatives if they already have that one!) along with enjoying half a dozen other fun activities including a miniature train ride, hot cocoa and cookies, Christmas games, making crafts, and “elf dancing.” Everything is included in the ticket price, even the professional photo by Jeff Hosa Photography!


UPDATE: We are super excited to say tickets for Polar Express have been selling like hotcakes! For some crazy reason, the ratio of adult to kids tickets was very high this year, so we are now SOLD OUT of adult tickets!

Since fire code says total attendance has to be capped, we cannot just add extra slots to increase our adult tickets. We had to look at all the previous year's data to determine the kids versus adults ticket allocations, and utilize that data to order thousands of hardcover books, so the ratio is not able to be changed. This means that all remaining tickets have to be at the $24.95 price point that includes the hardcover holiday book. If you are an adult that didn't get an adult ticket in time, you can still come, you will just need to pay for the slightly more expensive kiddos ticket, and get to take home an additional book for your family. (Don't worry...we have 4 different books to choose from, so you don't have to take 2 of the same book!)

We apologize for any inconvenience. This is a very important fundraiser for our non-profit, so we appreciate your understanding! In order to minimize the confusion this causes our guests, we are changing the ticket availability in the system to just show the one remaining ticket type so our guests are not confused on what to do.


As always, the Depot has raised several thousand dollars to help with scholarships for families going through a hard time this Christmas. Thanks to our Billings community for supporting this event and allowing us to create some magic for the children who need it most!

This event is a fundraiser for our non-profit, community-owned Historic Billings Depot! Thank you to our sponsors Cloud Peak Energy, Singh Contracting, BNSF Railway, and Stillwater Mining for everything they do to support our community. We could not do events like this if it were not for generous folks like you!
