At 10,000 square feet with a beautiful 2,700 square-foot outdoor courtyard, The Ashton Depot is a full-service event venue and catering company led by co-owners Executive Chef Cesar Gallegos and Ashlee Johnson, daughter of Ashton Hotel and Ashton Depot Founder Shirlee Gandy.

The historic Santa Fe Depot was built in 1899. The trains ran from 1900 to 2003 making it the longest running train station in the country. In 2003, the worn-down building was painstakingly restored and reopened in 2006 as The Ashton Depot.

The Ashton Depot hosts weddings, rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, corporate events, galas, holiday parties, school auctions, trainings, team-buildings, celebration of life events and more.

Our Offsite Catering Team takes our show on the road providing everything from setup to cleanup, custom meal and bar packages, bartenders and servers for private in-home parties to full-scale galas.

The ballroom boasts the original marble floors, tin ceilings, exquisite woodwork and stained-glass windows, all present in the building in 1899.
