The Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra (GJSO) is hosting a local Gardens of Note: Garden Tour on Saturday, June 11 and Sunday, June 12 from 10 am – 2 pm. The Garden Tour is a fundraising event for our local, professional symphony orchestra.

“Gardens, like music, are the inspiration of our souls bringing joy to all who view them and peace to their hearts,” says Tour Coordinator Karen Hildebrandt. “This Garden Tour will treat our attendees to a close-up and intimate look at some of the prettiest and most creative gardens in Grand Junction.”

Eight gardens throughout the Grand Valley are featured on the tour – some in the xeriscape style often seen throughout many homes in Western Colorado.

“We’re excited to offer this fun outing to our community for a second year,” Kelly Anderson, Executive Director of the GJSO states.  “We are certain that all of our tour guests will find inspiration and a time to unwind and relax while viewing these artistic and beautiful gardens.”

Garden attendants will be in many of the gardens to offer information on notable features for an artistic, fun, educational, and immersive garden experience. At various garden locations along the self-guided tour, further entertainment and/or activities will be provided such as live music, live artist painting, and a bake sale by the Grand Junction Symphony Guild members.

Tickets are available now for only $25 and can be purchased online at, by phone at 970-243-6787, or in person at 414 Main Street, Grand Junction, CO 81501. The tickets may be used on one or both days of the event, and include information of note from each garden as well as live music at one of the locations.

The Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra offices are open Monday – Friday from 9 am – 4 pm. They offer high-quality orchestral performances and education throughout Western Colorado in the form of Classics, Pops, and Chamber Series concerts and programs. You can learn more about the GJSO at
