Summer Tours of Bibler Home & Gardens Support Scholarships for FVCC Students
Tickets are now on sale for the Bibler Home and Gardens Splendid Summer Evenings and Garden Party. Hosted by the Flathead Valley Community College Foundation in partnership with the Bibler Foundation, these events support student scholarships at FVCC.
The Bibler Home is renowned for its exquisite collection of antiques, sculptures and Persian tapestries and its vibrant gardens, comprised of tens of thousands of tulips and daffodils accented with ponds, waterfalls, fountains, wooden foot bridges and other calming touches. With the exception of privately arranged tours, the home and gardens are accessible only through the FVCC Foundation tours during select weekends in the spring and summer.
Splendid Summer Evenings, featuring guided two-hour tours of the Bibler Home and Gardens, are scheduled for July 19 – 22 at 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. New this summer, two-hour daytime tours will be offered Aug. 2 and 4 at 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. All tours include opportunities to address questions to the Bibler’s head gardener. Tickets are $15 per adult and $5 per child.
In addition to the tours, The Culinary Institute of Montana at FVCC will present a gourmet Summer Garden Party in the Bibler Home July 18 at 5:00 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to explore the gardens on their own. Tickets to the Garden Party are $60 per person or $110 per couple.
