Every year for nine years until 2020, the Chelsea Depot Artisans Market showed handcrafted work at the historic depot during Chelsea's "Wine, Women, Shopping" event. This year's is Saturday, November 12, 2022 from 10-5 if it is safe to do so. Hopefully next year they will show at the depot during Chocolate in February and Chelsea Summer Festival in July. The charming venue offers a wonderful backdrop to the offerings of some of our area's most talented artisans. These photos are from November 2019.

A lot of excitement permeated the building as a movie was filmed at the historic Chelsea Depot in December 2017. A Grand River Productions movie titled "Guest Artist" was put on by Chelsea's Jeff Daniels in collaboration with Timothy Busfield and Melissa Gilbert. A Christmas tree became part of the depot decor until the end of February, when re-shoots took place.

The film was shopped at film festivals, premiered at the Michigan Theater in December 2019,  and hopefully we will all be able to see it soon!

Thanks to the film company and to board members Todd and David for lights and decorations, we have a beautiful tree for our December events!

 

 

 

 

A 50th birthday party at the depot featured fun, colorful decorations including black and white checked tablecloths, vinyl records, balloons, and a root beer float stand!

How's this for a beautiful

unicorn themed

child's birthday party?

Great decorations WITHOUT

marring the historic depot walls

with tacks and tape!

 

The depot is a wonderful place to 

celebrate LIFE - 

from a memorial luncheon 

honoring a man

whose many loves included flamingoes...

to a dance party 

with lovely ladies 

celebrating friendship and fun.

The Historic Chelsea Train Depot 

was the site of a marriage proposal 

last summer. A young man from Iowa 

rented the depot to propose marriage to his

Chelsea sweetheart. And as the sign says, 

she said YES!

The depot will also be the site

of their wedding shower. 

Don't you love happy endings?
