BUENA PARK, Calif. – Knott’s Berry Farm magically transform into Knott’s Merry Farm during the holiday season with the presentation of “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. Spectacular decorations include a 65 foot tall Christmas tree,  a colorful Christmas parade starting Thanksgiving day and running through December, and seasonal entertainment.

CHARLIE BROWN, LUCY, LINUS, SALLY, SCHROEDER and  SNOOPY partake in all the holiday festivities including candy making, tree trimming, and even toy building!

One of the annual highlights of the Knott's Berry Farm holiday experience is the anticipated ice spectacular.  “Snoopy’s Cool Christmas” appears in the 2,100-seat Charles M. Schulz Theatre. It is hosted by the famous skating Beagle and features Knott’s ensemble skaters, dazzling sets, colorful costumes and surprises.

Knott’s 1880s Ghost Town will again be transformed into Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village, inviting mall-weary guests to explore one-of-a-kind treasures created by more than 100 artisans in a Victorian holiday wonderland of strolling carolers, musical groups, community choirs and lavish holiday decorations.

Adding to the unique Village atmosphere are live performances of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” and O’Henry’s “A Gift of the Magi” in the Bird Cage Theatre.

Elf Mountain Christmas is also back. The world famous Timber Mountain Log Ride has once again been transformed this holiday season giving guests an up-close and-personal view into the world of Santa’s Elves. Sneak a peak as Santa’s helpers get ready for Santa’s busiest day of the year. Rich with lights, music and the merriest of times, this attraction.

Experience the wonder of “Berry Merry Lights,” as hundreds of thousands of twinkling white and multicolored lights, adorning Knott’s historic Ghost Town and Camp Snoopy, merrily light up the nighttime sky from dusk to Park closing.
A trip to Knott’s Merry Farm would not be complete without a visit with the man of the hour – Santa! Stop by Santa’s Headquarters for a little one-on-one with the big guy. Here, in Santa’s cozy hideaway, kids can share their wish lists with St. Nick, and Mom and Dad can take home a picture of the occasion (photo requires additional fee).

Village guests can also indulge in the ultimate comfort foods with Knott’s world-famous holiday treats, including fresh-baked pies, cakes, cookies, muffins and gingerbread men, as well as daily specials and the legendary cooking at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant. For an all you can eat buffet, try Joe Cool’s Backyard BBQ Holiday Style starting November and running Saturdays and Sundays through December. You can partake of a holiday feast that includes Mrs. Knott’s famous fried chicken, roast turkey, vegetarian lasagna, roast beef, mashed potatoes, boysenberry pie and much more!

Another holiday treat is “Snoopy’s Calico Christmas Tree Lighting” each evening in Calico Square. Join SNOOPY, LUCY, LINUS, SALLY and CHARLIE BROWN as they host a song-and-dance show complete with carolers and a Christmas sing-along then light a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. The Peanuts gang is also featured in their very own live musical show, “Winter Wonderland” shown daily in Camp Snoopy.

Merry Farm guests can combine their holiday treats with Knott’s blockbuster rides. The legendary GhostRider®, the ultimate wooden sleigh ride; 30-story Supreme Scream®, the world’s tallest descending thrill ride; Silver Bullet, the longest and tallest suspended coaster in the West and Knott’s newest addition, Pony Express, all deliver a thrill this holiday season.

Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village is included with regular Knott’s Berry Farm admission daily.
