Many events have been canceled due to the pandemic, including many annual events, while others have gone virtual or socially distanced. Remember to check ahead and read all instructions before you attend any of these events.

Pumpkin Patches

Schools and churches often have patches, but this year they are significantly scaled back. Grocery stores and hardware stores are open and regularly have pumpkins for sale, and you might spot a pumpkin or two among the other squash at a farmers market. ABC Tree Farm’s Pick of the Patch Pumpkins have reduced locations this year but still have patches throughout the Bay Area. This year, they’re offering a pumpkin delivery service within the San Francisco Bay Area, so you can remain home and still participate.
