October Events in Marin

September 27, 2023

This October in Marin, you can find spooky-holiday-themed celebrations and pumpkin patches in our separate harvest events post. Look below for the monthly roundup of farm visits, walks, markets, nature talks, volunteer opportunities, and virtual events.

The beautiful vistas of MALT-protected land you see as you explore the region support our thriving agricultural community, sustain biodiverse habitats, and connect us to our local food and fiber producers. We hope you will get outside this month to enjoy all the events Marin’s open spaces and working lands have to offer.

Virtual Events

Please double check details for all events at the links above before venturing out, as MALT is not the event host organization for most of the Marin events listed here. Dates, times, fees, or restrictions may change. 


Every time you shop, you can choose to support your local food economy and the farmers and ranchers who help steward this vital landscape. Start today!
