Christmas is my family’s favorite time of year! And excitement for the big day is just starting to build! Yesterday, while walking through my local mall , I saw the anticipation of the season right around the corner. Shiny Christmas decorations hung from the stores’ ceilings, shelves were stocked full of new merchandise and lights shimmered from the newly decorated Christmas trees.
About Knott’s Merry Farm
As a part of this year’s long list of favorite holiday traditions, my family and I plan to attend Knott’s Berry Farm’s seasonal event Knott’s Merry Farm that runs from November 19 – January 8! Even our very own pet Snoopy was so excited to hear the news that he requested to watch the nostalgic A Charlie Brown Christmas in preparation for the big day!
This year’s Knott’s Merry Farm includes park-wide lavish decorations, live entertainment, festive food and a shopping wonderland filled with local artisans. Here’s a sneak peek into what’s in store for visitors!
Merry Christmas Snoopy! Ice Show

In the exciting show, filled with whimsy and spectacular skating, Snoopy enjoys all of the best parts of the season, including trimming the Christmas tree, awaiting Santa’s arrival and attending the festive Christmas Ball!
Live Entertainment at Knott’s Merry Farm
Seasonal live entertainment fills the park during Knott’s Merry Farm! Ghost Town celebrates of the sounds of the season with the Dickensian vocal quartet. In the intimate setting of Ghost Town’s historic Bird Cage Theatre, catch a live performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol or O. Henry’s A Gift of the Magi.
Then head over to Camp Snoopy to watch the Peanuts Gang in their charming holiday show “A Peanuts Guide to Christmas.” The Peanuts give their take and unique wisdom in a primer designed to help everyone survive the holidays. The show features delightful mash ups of holiday songs with a cheerful and heartwarming dose of the Peanuts gang. After the show, head right next door to the Peanuts Meet and Greet Area to take a picture with your favorite character.
New this year, It’s The Merriest Christmas Show Ever, Charlie Brown takes place at the new Calico Mine Stage. The Peanuts gang is at it again this holiday season as they have put on the greatest Christmas pageant ever with Charlie Brown directing, of course. Join Charlie and the gang for a charming Christmas show as they perform traditional upbeat holiday classics and spread Christmas cheer. Find out if Snoopy returns home in time for a magical and festive holiday season to celebrate Christmas with Charlie, Sally and the rest of the Peanuts.
Finally, when the sun sets on the Farm, Calico Stage lights up with the celebration of the season in Snoopy’s Merriest Tree Lighting. Join Snoopy and Friends for a musical, whimsical tree lighting featuring a cast of Toy Soldiers, Snowmen, Elves and America’s most famous beagle, Snoopy!
