Peanuts Characters Growing up in Southern California, every year my family had a tradition of going to Knott’s Berry Farm during the holidays. When the temperature dropped, and Thanksgiving/ Christmas Break mode kicked in, we headed to Knott’s for a day of fun and of course, funnel cake and fried chicken. As a mom, it’s now such a joy to recreate this tradition and introduce my son to the holiday season at Knott’s Merry Farm.

Knott’s is such a great destination for our family that we’ve decided to become Season Passholders. Right now, New passholders can purchase a 2015 Season Pass today and use it for one 2014 visit! Plus, visit additional days in 2014 for only $9.99. This is going to make a great holiday gift for other family members who love the park too!

From November 22 through January 4, 2015, Knott’s Berry Farm transforms into “Knott’s Merry Farm,” a magical park-wide event with lavish decorations, live entertainment, festive food, and a shopping wonderland filled with local artisans, and even a brand new ice spectacular, Merry Christmas, Snoopy!

Some of the highlights that we’re personally looking forward to:

Live Entertainment:

  • After the sun sets, Calico Stage lights up with the celebration of the season in Snoopy’s Merriest Tree Lighting. Park guests can join in for a musical, whimsical tree lighting featuring a cast of Toy Soldiers, Snowmen, Elves and America’s most famous beagle, Snoopy!
  • Ghost Town and Calico Railroad celebrate Christmas on Engine 41. We can climb aboard a vintage railcar and meet an ever-changing group of Ghost Town residents eager to share their Christmas plans and songs with you.

    This has become an annual event for us as well. My family will be coming out this year to visit and Knott's Berry Farm is a the top of our list! The teens will love the adventurous rides like the Silver Bullet and the Excellerator, while the younger group will enjoy the tamer rides.

    Our day will be filled with rides, shows and food.
