Celebrate National Fried Chicken Day at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant

Knott's Berry Farm

Knott’s Berry Farm is home to world-class rides, thrilling roller coasters, shows & attractions in 4 themed areas including Old West Ghost Town and Camp Snoopy.

It is often said that Knott’s Berry Farm was born on a dining table. Because of Walter Knott’s successful farming of the boysenberry and Cordelia Knott’s famous fried chicken dinners, we have today’s Knott’s Berry Farm.

To honor Cordelia Knott and her inspiring contributions to Knott’s Berry Farm, we are celebrating National Fried Chicken Day on Friday, July 6th at the legendary Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant.  Mrs. Knott’s famous fried chicken dinners put Knott’s Berry Farm on the map as the must stop roadside attraction since the 1930s.

This year, Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant is offering a special 10% discount for diners between 11am-2pm and 8pm-10pm only on National Fried Chicken Day. Season Passholders can combine the celebratory discount with their Season Pass discount for an extra special offer. The celebratory 10% discount is also available at the Chicken-To-Go quick service counter next door between 11am-2pm and 8pm-10pm on July 6th.

Join us at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant next Fry-day for special photo ops and of course, some of the tastiest fried chicken this side of the west. Snap a picture with the iconic rooster that guards the restaurant doors and use the special Snapchat filter for extra fun!
