Nothing puts you in the holiday spirit more than indulging in your favorite Holiday treats. At Knott’s Merry Farm you’ll be welcomed with the sweet smell of fresh baked cookies and peppermint along with some new savory options. We’ve put together the ultimate Merry Farm food guide to bring you a list of the top 10 foods not to miss at Knott’s Merry Farm.
Brand new to Knott’s this season is the holiday tamale. Tamales are a Christmas staple here in Southern California. Available in chicken or beef, the tamale packs a savory punch of zesty flavor that will have you wanting more. Christmas tamales are available inside Santa’s Christmas Cabin and the Cantina in Fiesta Village.
The Tamale plate offered in Fiesta Village comes with a side of rice and beans and is available on the Season Pass – All Season Dining Plan.

New for Knott’s Merry Farm 2017 is the Holiday Pizza topped with a puree of cranberry and yams, turkey, ham, sweet potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, and sliced Brussel sprouts with the crust brushed in a parmesan olive oil. It's like tasting an entire holiday meal in one bite. The Holiday Pizza is available by the slice or whole at Hollywood Hits Pizza on the Knott’s Boardwalk.
