Annual events are explained below, with upcoming Foundation events and tickets shared on our events calendar.
Festival of Flavors
Festival of Flavors is a series of exciting culinary events that take place across the Flathead Valley throughout the year. In partnership with the FVCC Culinary Institute of Montana, the Festival is now in its 14th season and generates scholarship funding for FVCC students.
Bibler Home and Garden Strolls
During the spring and summer, local residents and visitors to the Flathead Valley have the opportunity to experience acres of colorful annuals and perennials in full bloom highlighted by stunning views of the Flathead Valley. Enjoy strolls of the gardens and the home’s exquisite collection of antiques, sculptures and heirloom Persian carpets.
Great Fish Community Challenge
The Great Fish Community Challenge is an annual 6-week long charitable giving event each summer benefiting Flathead Valley nonprofits. In 2021, the FVCC Foundation raised more than $86,000 to support Flathead Valley Community College’s mission to promote excellence in lifelong learning. Campaign information for 2022 coming soon!
Our Alumni network enables current and former students to stay involved with FVCC, connect with fellow peers, and celebrate FVCC. Go Eagles!
