When we started looking for a wedding reception venue for our son, we searched all of Gallatin Valley and were delighted when we found a charming venue in the quaint town of Gallatin Gateway.  We knew within minutes of checking out the Gateway Community Center, it was the perfect venue for us. Lauri Olsen, Gateway Community Center Coordinator, helped make the rental reservation a smooth process. Our Caterer, out of Butte, was pleased with the kitchen and setup.  The evening was filled with lots of good food, great music, dancing, friends and memories to last a lifetime.

We were so impressed with the Gateway Community Center that we booked the facility again for our other son and our daughter’s wedding receptions. Our caterer was very happy that we chose the same venue for all three wedding receptions. We highly recommend this venue for any of your special events.
