Merry Christmas at Knott’s Merry Farm!


As the holidays creep near and Christmas gets closer, what better way to celebrate the cheer by spending time with your friends and family at Knott’s! Knott’s has transformed their entire park for the Christmas holidays, so come on over and catch some of that cheer!

Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, I didn’t either. So why not just catch everything? Let’s go!

Lucy’s Wish List Show at Camp Snoopy Theatre (4 shows)

This cute sing-a-long about Lucy’s Wish List will warm some hearts! It features Santa Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy van Pelt, Linus van Pelt, and Schroeder! In the end, you have the opportunity to take photos with the cast at Snoopy’s Dog House area!

If you like ice shows, make sure to catch Merry Christmas, Snoopy! Ice Show at the Charles M. Schulz Theatre. There are four shows throughout the day, featuring talented actors and a Snoopy on ice!


Take a nice quiet rest from the crowd and visit the Bird Cage Theatre to watch A Christmas Carol or The Gift of the Magi performed by a talented cast. The actors sure have put their own little flourishes to these traditional characters, making it an experience you’ll want to watch for either the atmosphere or even just the laughs. There are five showings for the play throughout the day.


Mr. Scrooge, restored to cheer!

Or for a slightly more upbeat break, head over to the Christmas Show at the Calico Saloon for a more interactive show featuring a charming Miss Cameo Kate and Dakota Dan (and their talented pianist, of course). You’ll be in for a sure drama as Kate charms the audience before her ex-boyfriend Dan comes back into the picture. Why “ex”, you ask? Why, because Mr. Dakota Dan hasn’t proposed to Miss Cameo Kate after courting for 13 years! Will they ever get back together, or will it end in tragedy? Married folks, you’ll get a kick out of this one. Catch one of the five showings throughout the day!


Greetings to everyone!

After that, why not stop by outside for the Christmas Crafts Village in Ghost Town just around the corner? With the many, many stalls full of arts and crafts, you’ll be sure to spend a good hour or two just admiring all the creativity being sold.

You can also catch a ride on Engine 41 at Calico Railroad from 11AM-5:15PM to take a tour of all the Christmas cheer!

Take a photo with Santa at Santa’s Christmas Cabin at the Wilderness Dance Hall between noon and 10pm. While you’re at it, make sure you stop by one of the many stalls inside the homey dance hall and get some hot chocolate and pastries! Their warm cookies and milk (or eggnog) are definitely a must have if you love the warm sugary goodness just melting on your tongue!


Don’t forget to catch Snoopy’s Merriest Tree Lighting at the Calico Square Stage at 6:15pm. Along with a Christmas dance show featuring the nutcracker army, dancing snowmen, a secret appearance by Snoopy, and a visit from Santa, you’ll be sure to ring in the holidays with cheer.



Santa arrives!


Merry Christmas!


And some very Special Guests on Opening Night!

Before you leave, make sure to take a walk down Main Street in Ghost Town for Knott’s Snow and Glow experience! On the hour, every hour, celebrate a white Christmas moment with your friends and family.
