It's the spookiest time of year at Knott's Berry Farm! Knott's Spooky Farm, not to get confused with Knott's Scary Farm, is happening right now on the Farm. On weekends during the month of October, and on Halloween, kids can enjoy a not-so-spooky celebration of Halloween activities. Best of all, they are included in the cost of admission! It's family-friendly and geared to ages 3-11…but fun for the whole family.

Knott’s Spooky Farm has always been a favorite of our family. Dressing up in costumes, going trick-or-treating, and enjoying the Farm all decorated for Halloween is so much fun. It’s always on our family's Fall bucket list. If you have never been to Knott's Spooky Farm, here are some things you will want to make sure to enjoy when you visit. Tip #1: Make sure to pick up a Spooky Farm map on your way into the park so that you know where all Halloween fun is.


5 Things You Won't Want to Miss a Knott's Spooky Farm

The Peanuts Costume Contest - Before heading to Knott's Spooky Farm, you want to make sure to get your costumes on. Kids are allowed to dress up for Knott's Spooky Farm. You can enter a fun costume contest at the Camp Snoopy Theatre to show off your costume, and even win a prize for the best costume. Tip #2: Check your map for Costume contest times.

Snoopy, Lucy, and Charlie Brown all pick their favorite costumes, so you have three chances to win. And let me tell you, the host of the costume contest is pretty funny and tells great jokes. So it's fun for parents to watch as well.

My gang was dressed up as the Peanuts Gang. Although we didn't win, it was so much fun. There is also a big dance party after the contest. Tip #3: Head over to the Character Meet and Greet (next to the Camp Snoopy restrooms) right after the show to meet some of the PEANUTS gang.

Trick-Or-Treating- Free candy? Yes, please! During Spooky Farm kids can go trick or treating through the streets of Knott's. The Ghost Town monsters pass out the candy to the kids all day long. You don't even need to bring your own trick-or-treat bag because Knott's will give the kids one when they enter the park.

Visit the Creepy Critters of Calico- Head over to the Livery Stable in Ghost Town and visit Knott's creepy little critters. Some are not-so-little...like the skeleton horse or the giant boa constrictor.

There are bugs, and lizards and even a rat town where you even pet them. Tip #4: Use hand sanitizer after your visit!

Get a Spooky Treat -There are so many spooky treat offering at Knott's during Spooky Farm, it will be hard to decide what to get. From pumpkin chili to Inferno Churros, there are Halloween foods located all over the park. Our favorite picks include Halloween donuts that are available at all of the bakeries.

And Snoopy Vampire Cookies...because they are just so cute. Tip #5: Don’t forget to get a picture of your spooky treat and share it on Instagram using #KnottsSpookyFarm

Halloween Entertainment- Finally, make sure to check out some of the Halloween entertainment at Spooky Farm. There are a handful of family-friendly shows happening around the park. There is Spooky Story Time and the Calliope Concert at the Bird Cage Theater, the "Monsters Are Coming" Stage Show at Camp Snoopy Theatre, and the astonishing Magician at the Calico Saloon! These shows are great for all ages, and also give you the perfect chance to rest your legs after trick-or-treating through the streets of Knott's. Tip #6: Come early to get the best seats!

Plus there is so much more to do at Spooky Farm. You'll just have to head over to Knott’s to find out. So, get the kids dressed up and head on over. Spooky Farm is only happening for a limited time during the month of October, you don't want to miss it. And my final tip of the day…Tip #7: Drop the kids off at the sitters after your day of fun, and head back for Scary Farm. It makes fun date night!
