Tickets are on sale for the University Farm Circle Holiday Home Tour, from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9.

The tour will feature seven Davis homes, decked out for the holidays with the holiday decorations, collections and traditions of the homeowners, as well as arrangements by designers and florists from Davis and Dixon who have donated their time decorating the homes.

One homeowner is a kitchen designer, while another home features not one but two pianos, along with numerous antiques.

Tour participants will see gorgeous holiday table settings and beautiful Christmas trees and other holiday décor.

According to event co-chairs Janet Collins and Pat Stromberg, the seven houses on the tour represent a variety of architectural styles, from traditional to French country ranch to contemporary Craftsman, with “fabulous” updates in most of the older homes. Five of the homes are in Central Davis, including one in College Park, and two are in South Davis. Participants may visit the homes in any order and will be asked to remove shoes or wear booties when entering the homes.

This year, the tour also will include a holiday boutique with a variety of vendors, which will take place at International House, Davis, and will include refreshments. Tickets are $20 for University Farm Circle members and $25 for the general public. They’re on sale at Beyond the Garden Gate, 1015 Olive Drive, and The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. Tickets also will be available at I-House, 10 College Park, for $25 on the day of the tour.

Ticket sales will help provide scholarships for UC Davis students through UFC’s Scholarship Endowment Fund.

The University Farm Circle is the oldest support group of UCD, with a long tradition of welcoming women to the community and its organization. Information about UFC membership is available at ufcdavis.org.
