Junior League Garden Tour

Garden Tour is the Junior League of Fort Collins’ signature fundraiser, attracting hundreds of attendees annually.

Join us as participants Tour through beautiful Fort Collins landscapes while educating both experienced and aspiring gardeners about the plants and flowers that make a garden become a true living space.

39TH ANNUAL JLFC GARDEN TOUR

SATURDAY, JUNE 25, 2022
8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Old Town Fort Collins
City Park at cross streets Jackson Ave and Olive Street

This event offers an opportunity to be inspired by beautiful garden landscapes and growing in Colorado best practices while connecting with industry professionals and other passionate gardeners. Proceeds support local community programs! 

The 2022 tour will feature several gardens in the Old Town Fort Collins Mountain 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 stop at the JLFC Will Call Ticket Booth located on the east side of City Park at cross streets Jackson Ave and Olive Street to pick up your ticket booklets. These contain a map of the Tour, descriptions of the homes, valuable coupons from our partners and more!

Tickets are available for purchase the day of tour and all tickets purchased online can be picked up at Will Call between 8:30am-1pm.

PARKING & TRANSPORTATION:
Bike racks available near each of the featured gardens. The Fort Collins Trolley runs noon–5pm, every 30 minutes, from City Park to Old Town. Parking is available at City Park and along W Oak St. Please cross streets at crosswalks where available.

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.

THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS
