The Pence Gallery organizes several key events and festivities for the community throughout the year.
The revenue from these special events provides an essential part of our operating budget and helps us bring amazing displays of art year-round to the public.

For over 28 years, the Pence's Garden Tour has provided the public with the opportunity to view 8-10 beautiful gardens. Centered in the town of Davis, these gardens are chosen for their diversity, overall design, and interesting use of plants. Visitors in the past have enjoyed Japanese gardens, art-filled yards, and xeriscapes filled with native grasses. This self-guided Tour is a ticketed event, taking place on the 1st Sunday in May. Tickets are sold at the Pence, among other locations, and include access to the gardens, homemade refreshments, and bidding in the silent auction area.

We are always looking for suggestions for fantastic gardens in Davis, so please email us the location and contact person's name to pencegallery@gmail.com
