Tickets on Sale Now For Spring Bibler Home and Garden Tours

Proceeds to benefit FVCC Student Scholarships and Programs

Each spring since 2004, the Bibler Foundation has partnered with the Flathead Valley Community College Foundation to offer intimate tours of the Bibler Home and Gardens as a scholarship and program fundraiser for the college.  The home is filled with an exquisite collection of antiques, sculptures and heirloom Persian carpets and is surrounded by 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 college Foundation tours during select weekends in May and during the last week in July when the gardens’ flowers are in full bloom.

This year’s spring tours will take place May 12, 19, and 20 featuring guided tours of the Bibler Home and Gardens at 10 a.m. and at noon.  The tours will be one-and-one-half hours in length and will include opportunities to address questions to the Bibler’s head gardener.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $3 for children.

Special two-hour tours will be offered at 2 p.m. each day featuring the opportunity to view the complete Bibler rug collection in addition to the home and gardens.  Tickets for the special tours are $20 per person.

Tickets for all tours are limited and must be purchased in advance through the Flathead Valley Community College Foundation Office by calling (406) 756-3632 or by visiting  Proceeds from all ticket sales will benefit student scholarships and programs at Flathead Valley Community College.
