Modern industrial wedding & event venue in Billings
Located in Historic South Billings
A wedding venue in South Billings, Montana
Adjacent to downtown Billings, The Gathering Place is a five minute walk to the heart of Montana’s largest city. The downtown area encompasses museums, theaters, and an arrayed culinary landscape.
Built in the early 1900’s as a Labor Temple, The Gathering Place was renovated to infuse life and an air of celebration back into the community.

Better to Gather + CLDI
In November of 2019, Better To Gather (BTG) partnered with CLDI to manage The Gathering Place. The BTG team offers full service event decorating and design, and is dedicated to making your event memorable and unique to you. Our goal is to take your dreams and make your event come to life. Initial consultations are complimentary.
If you choose to rent the space for only one day, this licensed and insured team has full access to our building so you don’t have to manage friends and family setting up / tearing down on your behalf. If you do choose to do your own decorating, catering, or some other key aspect of your event, we encourage you to book the venue for more than a full day. So, whether you are planning your wedding, corporate event, or wanting to partner with us for a shoot we hope we can make your next event Better To Gather!
