All seasons of fun lineups are subject to change without notice.

PEANUTS Celebration

Knott’s Berry Farm kicks off its annual Seasons of Fun with the return of the Knott’s PEANUTS Celebration, a special multi-weekend event uniquely dedicated to celebrating the beloved PEANUTS characters. Guests can step inside the pages of a Charles M. Schulz comic book strip as Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and the rest of the PEANUTS Gang take over Knott’s Berry Farm with a celebration that includes interactive character experiences, new festive PEANUTS inspired décor, animated photo opportunities, deliciously themed-treats, playful shows and so much more. The Knott’s PEANUTS Celebration will take place weekends at the start of the New Year.

Boysenberry Festival

The Knott’s Boysenberry Festival is an annual food-inspired event that celebrates the park’s historical roots by highlighting the little berry that started it all, the boysenberry. The springtime celebration features new and returning boysenberry-inspired creations crafted by the Knott’s culinary team. Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in a tantalizing lineup of dishes that can only be found at Knott’s in the spring. In addition to the tantalizing lineup of unique food and drink offerings, the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival offers a wide selection of daily entertainment, live music and fun activities for guests of all ages to enjoy.

Summer at Knott's

Knott’s summertime fun will begin with the debut of the highly anticipated  “Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair,” an all-new 4D interactive dark ride that celebrates a beloved classic attraction with a reimagined gaming twist. The summertime adventures extend through the night as Knott’s brings back your favorite Knott’s Summer Nights bands and DJ’s. Guests can enjoy a variety of bands that rotate at the Calico Park stage nightly, rock out to a top 40s band at the Calico Mine Stage, or dance to the beats of the Boardwalk DJ around Charleston Circle Fountain.

Knott's Scary Farm

Knott’s Scary Farm is the largest and most haunting Halloween experience in Southern California, with unimaginable scares and innovative thrills that can’t be found anywhere else. The fully transformed theme park features uniquely haunted mazes and attractions, sinister shows and more than 1,000 horrifying creatures lurking in the fog and hiding in every corner of the park. This Halloween event has all the ingredients of a truly terrifying nightmare. But unlike most dreams, Knott’s Scary Farm is a nightmare you can’t wake up from -- which makes it the thing to do for Halloween.
