Pumpkin Patches

Find the Perfect Jack-O-Lantern

Autumn in San Diego means warm days, cool nights, Halloween fun and, of course, pumpkin patches! Browse the list below to find the perfect patch near you.

Get Ready to Score Some Gourds — and Much More

From rides to corn mazes to farm animals to, yes, piles and piles of those beloved orange gourds, San Diego’s pumpkin patches make for a great way to spend a fall day — and snap a selfie or two along the way. The best part is, you’ll find them both close to the city center and arrayed around San Diego’s beautiful mountains and back country. Make an excursion of your visit by heading to such rural bastions of pumpkin appreciation as the Bates Nut Farm in Escondido or Mountain Valley Ranch in Ramona. Or incorporate some pumpkin perusal into a busy day of visiting San Diego by popping into the close-by Carlsbad Strawberry Co. for a tractor ride, or Mr. Jack O’Lantern’s Pumpkin Patch in La Jolla for a little maze time and photo-booth fun. No matter which patch you decide to catch, you can bet it’ll be a worthy part of your autumn experience in San Diego. And it just might inspire you to check out more of San Diego's outdoor wonders, from gorgeous botanical gardens to stunning viewpoints to (in springtime) beautiful flower blooms. So be sure to check back here in September for all the latest pumpkin-patch dates and details. And happy pumpkin hunting!
