Halloween 2022 is almost here, and the Halloween events in San Francisco are springing up faster than your kid can eat candy after trick-or-treating! There are so many Halloween activities for kids of all ages, from trick-or-treating to pumpkin patches, movies in the park to Halloween train rides, and favorites like the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin and Art Festival and the Goblin Jamboree. We've rounded up the best Halloween events in San Francisco below, but more events are being announced every day, so keep checking the calendar of events as we continue to add to both our calendar and this roundup.

Not all kids are into the scary season, so we also included pumpkin patches and events catering to little goblins.
