With Explorit bringing crawling, scaly, and slithering friends to play with, and Anne Gregory’s massive creature collages towering over you, there will be no shortage of tactile enjoyment. And if getting messy with artist Anne Gregory isn’t your style, pop outside for some signature drinks at the bar, grab a spot near the heaters, and let the music of Santa Barbara’s The Riverside wash over you!
Doors open at 7 and close at 10 PM.
Everyone is welcome, but as always, it’s 21 to drink.

For over 25 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.
