Marin and Sonoma Pumpkin Patches 2020
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 be different due to the COVID-19 health emergency; expect precautions like social distancing and mandatory mask wearing to be in place and attractions and amenities like bounce houses, slides, and corn pits to be unavailable. Some favorite pumpkin patches have even been canceled this year. We've listed the canceled pumpkin patches at the end of the article. The good news is, it looks like pumpkin picking, corn mazes, pony rides, and petting zoos will probably be permitted! We'll keep this page updated with any news or changes.
