Celebrating the Holidays at Knott’s Merry Farm!

By Nisreen & ErinTextured Merry Farm Logo

Knott’s Berry Farm, the first theme park in the nation, carries a legacy of joy that once a year it indulges in completely. From November 21, 2015 to January 3, 2016, the seasonal Knott’s Merry Farm brings the winter of storybooks to life in southern California, complete with dazzling decorations, fresh snow, and show stopping performances.  There’s more to see and experience this year than ever before!

It’s Snowing in Knott’s Christmas Craft’s Village!

Ghost Town transforms into Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village at this special time of the year, turning into a shopping wonderland that boasts local artisans and Knott’s specialties throughout the Village. It’s a magical white winter complete with jolly Santa Claus in Santa’s Christmas Cabin.

Then make your way to share your wish list through the fresh snow that falls every night across the Village, from the School House to the Saloon and stretching as far as the Assay Office. All around the cabin, you can find decadent pastries, homemade cookies and seasonal craft beer to satisfy everyone’s favorite indulgences. Take your picture with Santa to bring the memory home with you!

Calico Train Ride

Don’t miss Christmas on Engine 41 as you make your way around the park. Ghost town and Calico Railroad invite guests to celebrate the holiday with the crew of Engine 41! Vintage cars are filled with an ever-changing group of cheery Ghost Town denizens eager to share their busy Christmas plans.

Stop by to see the new show: Christmas Time is Here, Charlie Brown. The show features a delightful mash up of some of your favorite holiday songs with a cheerful and heartwarming dose of the Peanuts gang.

As you wander the streets of the Village you’ll find it brewing with adventure.

Calico Carolers make the streets sparkle with holiday cheer to the tune of song and hand bell chimes as they walk past chainsaw sculpting performances, delicate glass blowing demonstrations, and tasty treats. All around will be Knotts’ world-famous holiday treats: poured-to-order maple lollipops at the Gold Trails Hotel, warm gingerbread men at the Farm Bakery, tasty holiday churros from the Churro Factory.
