The Tolay Fall Festival offers two weeks of old-time, nature-based fun each October at Tolay Lake Regional Park, southeast of Petaluma. The public is invited to attend on the weekends of Oct. 15-16 and 22-23. School groups are invited on the weekdays of Oct. 12-14 and 20-21.
More than just a pumpkin patch, the Tolay Fall Festival is a seasonal celebration connecting visitors with the beauty and history of this special park. Fall Festival activities and displays are low-key, hands-on and educational by design.
Weekend hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and teens and $3 for children 12 and under. Regional Parks members get free, one-time admission for two adults and two children and free parking when they present their parking tags at the entrance. Parking for non-members is $7. Activities inside the Festival are free.
