Junior League Garden Tour

Garden Tour is the Junior League of Fort Collins’ signature fundraiser, attracting hundreds of attendees annually.  Located in Fort Collins, the annual Tour takes participants through beautiful landscapes while educating both experienced and aspiring gardeners about the plants and flowers that make a garden become a true living space.

Junior League of Fort Collins Garden Tour 2021
Saturday, June 26, 2021 | 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. | Le Jardin Neighborhood

The event offers patrons a chance to support local community programs while viewing and learning about plants, flowers and gardens.

After the cancellation of our 2020 event, we are looking forward to bringing this event back to our community.  Garden Tour offers an opportunity to be inspired by beautiful landscapes and growing best practices while connecting with industry professionals and other passionate gardeners.

Online ticket sales have closed, but tickets for the event are still available at the door.  Keep reading for more information.

The 2021 tour will feature seven gardens in the Le Jardin neighborhood. Homeowners have volunteered their gardens to provide an opportunity for the local community to learn about plants, landscape design and provide stunning inspiration to others for their own gardening adventures.

Fort Collins Nursery has partnered with the Junior League to present this event for decades and provides staff at each home to answer questions and provide insights on how to translate featured gardens to the homes of attendees.  Master Gardeners with Colorado State University Extension will also be available to provide information.

Please plan to park at Front Range Community College / Harmony Library and cross Shields via the crosswalk.  You’ll enter the Le Jardin neighborhood via Westbury Drive.  Will Call will be located on Corisca Drive near Picard Lane.

If you have mobility issues, there will be limited street parking within the LeJardin neighborhood.

As you enter the neighborhood, please stop at Will Call to pick up your ticket booklets if you purchased your ticket online.  These contain a map of the Tour, descriptions of the homes, valuable coupons from our partners and more!

Tickets are still available for purchase at the Tour, so bring feel free to bring a friend!

Water will be available at each home, and a portable restroom will be located on Bordeaux Drive, across the street from one of the homes on the Tour.

To ensure the safety of our homeowners, volunteers and community members, we will be making the following adjustments to our traditional event:
  • There will not be a VIP experience.
  • There will not be rhubarb punch.
  • While sponsor booths will still be set up in various locations, there will not be any food trucks, live music or any other elements that would encourage crowding.
We hope that you’ll plan to join us to be inspired and enjoy a beautiful day in support of the Junior League of Fort Collins.  This event is more important now than ever before.  More and more information is coming to light about how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting women disproportionately.
  • In September, 865,000 women over 20 dropped out of the American workforce compared with 216,000 men.
  • One in four women are considering downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce entirely because of the impact of COVID-19.

Because of this, we know that our Career Closet will be a vital resource in the months to come as our community recovers from this crisis.
