Knott’s #MerryFarm Returns

Never has there been so much to see and do during the holiday season at Knott’s Merry Farm, now through January 8th! I feel like Knott’s was made for this time of the year. Ghost Town is magical during Christmas.

Knott's Merry Farm

My husband has fond memories of Knott’s, especially during Christmastime. When he was young, his family would come to the park Sunday mornings. They would enjoy the log ride, mine train and have a funnel cake. It’s wonderful to be able to make similar memories with our children.

Take a trip back in time and celebrate Christmas in the Old West town of Calico. Climb aboard the Calico Railroad for Christmas on Engine 41 and meet Ghost Town residents eager to share their holiday plans with you. Those looking for great gift ideas can shop Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village, a shopping wonderland where local artisans demonstrate their craft and sell their unique gifts.

Snow and Glow in Ghost Town

In the evening, join Snoopy as he lights up the night in the Snoopy’s Merriest Tree Lighting show, then take a stroll through Ghost Town where snow gently falls while thousands of sparkling lights dance to the beat of holiday music.

This wonderful holiday tradition can be found at Knott’s Merry Farm from November 21-January 3!
