Knott's Berry Farm is a Merry Farm!
Knott’s Berry Farm is gorgeous during the holidays. From the moment you first step into the park, the holiday spirit is alive. To fully experience the holiday cheer, start your day by walking through Ghost Town. The old town perfectly plays the part of a classic Christmas town. You’ll see the Christmas Crafts Village, where many shops line the streets, filled with crafts that would make wonderful gifts. With such variety, you could easily do all of your holiday shopping with these creative artisans. When the sun is down, you will be delighted by falling snow on Ghost Town Main Street and Schoolhouse Road! This soap based snow is magical and parents will find themselves as charmed as their children.
When you reach Calico Park, you are greeted by an enormous Christmas tree. A red carpet leads the way to the tree, making it a perfect spot for some family pictures. Next to the tree, you’ll see the Calico Railroad decked out in holiday best, with a beautiful wreath and festive garlands.
Be sure to check out It’s the Merriest Christmas Show Ever, Charlie Brown at the Calico Mine Stage. It’s a musical spectacular featuring singing, dancing, and your favorite Peanuts characters. It’s a delightful showcase that is sure to remind you of A Charlie Brown Christmas. The show is under half an hour, a perfect amount of time to relax.
What Knott’s trip wouldn't be complete without the food? The food at Knott’s "Merry" Farm this year is some of the best yet! Turkey is the main event, with some highlights including a turkey sandwich, a holiday turkey pizza, and elotes that have fiery Hot Cheetos. In keeping with the Christmas spirit, there are also three kinds of tamales - beef, chicken, and sweet. As for the desserts, you’ll find holiday crepes, donuts, sugar cookies...and who can forget the Boysenberry pie? Knott’s is known for boysenberries, and the pie speaks for itself. It is delicious!
Knott’s Merry Farm runs November 16-January 6. Tickets start at $50.
