Knott’s Merry Farm Transforms into a Winter Wonderland: Join Snoopy for a Magical Snow-Filled Christmas Spectacular

Knott’s Merry Farm is ushering in the holiday season with its enchanting transformation into a winter wonderland. Sparkling with thousands of lights and adorned with miles of garland, the park becomes a festive destination. This year, guests are treated to a fresh rendition of Charles Dickens’ classic in “A Calico Christmas Carol” by Knott’s melodrama company. Additionally, the Bird Cage Theatre is staging “The Gift of the Magi, 1885,” a touching adaptation of O. Henry’s beloved story.

The magic continues with the Snow and Glow experience in Ghost Town, where a symphony of lights dances to Christmas music, accompanied by a gentle snowfall. The Wilderness Dance Hall is now Santa’s Christmas Cabin, offering memorable photo opportunities with Santa and his friends.

Musical celebrations abound, with the Calico Carolers and The Sleigh Bells a cappella group bringing Victorian and soulful Christmas tunes to life. For a lively time, join Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies for a mix of music, comedy, and holiday cheer. The Calico Mine Stage hosts “Home for the Holidays,” a festive show blending dance and popular holiday songs.

Over at the Walter Knott Theater, Snoopy and the Peanuts gang present “Snoopy’s Night Before Christmas,” an ice-skating spectacle interpreting the classic poem with a Peanuts twist.

Culinary delights are a key part of the festivities, with unique offerings like the Turkey Ball and the Red Velvet Churro, among other holiday-themed treats. The Christmas Crafts Village showcases local artisans, while the online Gift Guide offers an array of Knott’s Berry Farm souvenirs and gifts.
