Event Setting

In springtime, the gardens feature more than a hundred thousand tulips, daffodils, and other bulbs as well as spring perennials and annuals. The gardens feature eight acres of beautifully landscaped beds, ponds, and fountains with swans and miniature animals. The home is beautifully furnished with an exceptional collection of antique Persian rugs and Inuit carvings and prints.

Bibler Gardens is a private display garden in Kalispell, Montana designed by Louis A. "Sam" Bibler. Sam landscaped, planted and maintained the gardens at his home from around 1980 until his death in 2002. The extensive gardens, including ponds, waterfalls, sculptures, arboretum, and a log stable with a menagerie of miniature animals, are maintained today according to Sam's desire to preserve the site as a place of lasting beauty that could be enjoyed by the Kalispell community and visitors to the area.

Public tours of the home and gardens are conducted twice annually, in the spring when thousands of tulips and daffodils are at their peak, and again in the summer when massive plantings of a wide variety of perennials and annuals reach their peak. These tours also provide an opportunity to view the interior of the beautifully furnished home.

Driving Directions

The Gardens are about 10 minutes west of downtown Kalispell. Detailed directions, including a map, will be furnished when tickets are purchased.
