/Annual “Splendid Feast”
Loading Events

The Elling House Arts & Humanities Center hosts an annual “Splendid Feast” each December. The historic Virginia City home is beautifully decorated, inside and out, presenting a warm and comfortable venue for the capacity gathering to enjoy an evening of delicious food, splendid live music, and wonderful fellowship. All of the proceeds from the dinner will be used to support future arts and humanities programs of the Elling House.

In the depths of winter, when Mother Nature holds Montana in her icy grip, the Elling House brings a magical mix of music, companionship and great food to its warm halls. Each year, toward the end of December, the Elling House hosts The Splendid Feast, a gathering of hearty souls, culinary delights, and holiday cheer in a most spectacular setting.

As guests arrive, water ice luminaries and hundreds of tiny bulbs light the driveway and entrance to the mansion. A grand tree greets the guests in the welcome room. In the parlor, a fire roars warmly from the hearth and musicians play holiday favorites on the piano. In the ballroom, wine, mead and cider flow freely to warm the belly and the soul. As the evening progresses, a local chef and a small army of festive volunteers prepare and present the Splendid Feast of wholesome delicacies. The walls are decked with natural decorations and trimmings provided by local artisans. Candle light and good company grows hearty conversation. Roars of laughter and holiday cheer rise and fall through the evening. As the evening draws to a close, dessert and coffee are served and guests leave with a warm sense of community and bellies full of wonderful food.
