I know that I’ve mentioned it before but going to Knott’s Berry Farm is one of our favorite things to do here in Southern California. I’ve been going since I was a little kid and I am so glad that I have been able to take my kids there and have them experience all the great things I did as a kid, plus SO much more! This year, my kids and I will be heading to Knott’s for the 3rd year in a row to see all of the decorations, live entertainment, food, rides and so much more that Knott’s Merry Farm has to offer.
Returning this year, the PEANUTS® gang, and a cast of world class ice skaters perform in the breathtaking ice show, Merry Christmas, Snoopy! in the 2,100 seat Charles M. Schulz Theatre. In this whimsical show, Snoopy enjoys all of the best parts of the season, including trimming the Christmas tree, awaiting Santa’s arrival, and attending the Christmas Ball! The show will run from November 21 – Jan 3 (dark Wednesdays).
The Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town transforms into Santa’s Christmas Cabin for the holiday season. Here, kids can share their wish lists with Santa Claus and take home a picture of the occasion. Enjoy such holiday delights as Santa’s homemade cookies, mouthwatering pastries, fresh roasted nuts, seasonal craft beer, and decadent cinnamon rolls. Knott’s world-famous holiday treats can be found all throughout Ghost Town, including fresh poured-to-order maple lollipops at the Gold Trails Hotel, holiday churros from the Churro Factory, and warm gingerbread men baked at the Farm Bakery.
One of our favorite parts is heading over to Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village, as Ghost Town transforms into a shopping wonderland filled with dozens of local artisans selling their unique gifts. Entrance to the Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village is free Monday through Thursday, November 23 – December 10, and is included with theme park admission every day.
When the sun sets on the Farm, the buildings and paths in Ghost Town will twinkle to the beat of holiday music while snow gently falls. This year, snow falls across even more of Ghost Town, from the School House to the Saloon and down to the Assay Office. Another nighttime tradition at Knott’s Merry Farm is Snoopy’s Merriest Tree Lighting show on the Calico Square Stage. This whimsical tree lighting features a cast of marching toy soldiers, the lovable Mrs. Claus, dancing snowmen, and the world’s most famous beagle, Snoopy!
