Halloween Events in the San Jose area

Halloween in San Jose and Nearby

Happy Halloween! Looking for frights, food, or family friendly fun? This year there are more in-person events across Silicon Valley!  Remember to check ahead and read all instructions before you attend any of these events.

Pumpkin Patches

Schools and churches often have patches. 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 is operating per county and state ordinances and have patches throughout the Bay Area. This year, they’re once again offering a pumpkin delivery service within the San Francisco Bay Area, so you can remain home and still participate.

We’re keeping this list strictly Halloween (and pumpkins), however there are plenty of wonderful Octoberfest, Dia De Los Muertos, Diwali, Harvest Festival, and many more seasonal celebrations and activities happening in the Silicon Valley throughout October in addition to these Halloween events.
