Marin and Sonoma Pumpkin Patches 2021
Fall is almost here, and for those seeking that true Halloween pumpkin patch experience, here's our annual guide to pumpkin patches in Marin and southern Sonoma counties. This year, things may still be a little different than usual due to the COVID-19 resurgence; expect precautions like social distancing and mandatory mask wearing to be in place and some attractions and amenities to be unavailable or limited.
Some favorite pumpkin patches, like the Tolay Fall Festival, have even been canceled again this year. (We've listed the canceled pumpkin patches at the end of the article.) We'll keep this page updated with any news or changes.
