Clothing Swap (Davis Night Market, 9–11 p.m. on Feb. 9)
Bring pieces of clothing you don’t wear anymore and swap them to renew your closet sustainably. For each item you bring, you can take another home. The swap includes a wide variety of styles, so you’re bound to find something you like. Meet with other swappers at Central Park and find more information on the Davis Night Market Instagram.
2nd Friday ArtAbout (Pence Gallery, 6–9 p.m. on Feb. 10)
Browse various art exhibits and connect with Davis-based artists at Pence Gallery’s art reception.
