The weather is cooling down (finally) and the holiday season is again upon us. One of the few places that still feels like the genuine nostalgic Christmas time of year is Knott’s Merry Farm. What’s your favorite part of Knott’s Merry Farm? Ours is to check out the live performances of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol or O. Henry’s A Gift of the Magi in an intimate setting of the historic Bird Cage Theatre. We miss the old melodramas that used to play there and love still being able to catch live theater in Ghost Town.
No visit to Knott’s Merry Farm is complete without catching a performance by the world famous beagle, Snoopy as he performs a brand new ice spectacular, Merry Christmas, Snoopy! inside of the 2,100 Charles M. Schulz Theatre. Snoopy ice shows happen year round, but the Christmas show has always been our favorite and heck, even Santa makes an appearance!
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without visiting Santa Claus. The Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town becomes home to Santa’s Christmas Cabin for the holiday season. Here, the young and the young at heart can share their wish lists with jolly Santa Claus and take home a picture of the occasion.
Here, guests can also indulge in holiday delights such as:
• Santa’s homemade cookies
• Hot fudge sundae bar
• Decadent hot chocolate topped with hand carved chocolate shavings
• Winter wine and craft beer tastings paired with fresh fruit, cheese and more!
One thing Knott’s always does well is food! Knott’s Berry Farm’s culinary elves have created delicious festive treats including Santa’s homemade cookies, sundae bar, decadent hot chocolate topped with hand carved chocolate shavings, and winter wine and craft beer tastings. Savor the ultimate comfort foods with Knott’s world famous desserts, including fresh made-to-order Maple Lollipops, churros from the Churro Factory, cakes, cookies, muffins and gingerbread men in the Farm Bakery.
Since we’re talking about the holidays, Knott’s Season Passes make the best gifts. This year you could buy a season pass that comes with food included! Yes, you could have lunch and dinner at Knott’s every single day of the season! You can’t beat that! We’re thinking about getting passes for Summer.
