Hilltop Hall is a beautiful old dance/concert hall from the 1800’s. It has been lovingly restored and is on the National Historic Register.
Hilltop Hall is located at 206 First Street North, Montgomery, MN 56069.
After a 16-month hiatus due to Covid-19, we finally felt safe resuming our Hilltop Happenings performances since the majority of people on stage and in the audience will have been vaccinated by this time. Our regular monthly gatherings resumed on August 29, 2021.
Hilltop Hall is home to Hilltop Happenings, an ongoing, monthly Variety Show. Join us on the last Sunday of the month from March through June and August through November. Each show begins at 4:00 PM when the performers gather on stage to offer a diverse mix of music ranging from popular standards to concert hall classics; and entertainment from comedy to inspirational.
