Merry Farm 2023 Returns to Knott's Berry Farm from November 17 through January 7

Tis the Season for Merry Farm at Knott's Berry Farm!!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Knott's! Decorations are starting to go up and the feeling of merriment is near.

Knott’s Merry Farm begins November 17 and goes through January 7. This festive event is one of my most favorite places to visit and visit again and again over the Holidays!

During the holiday season, the park transforms into a dazzling winter wonderland featuring a landscape of thousands of twinkling lights and miles of beautiful garland. I've said it before and I'll say it again... Knott's is gorgeous to photograph at night and during Merry Farm there's that extra special feeling. 

New for guests this year, Knott’s melodrama company presents a reimagined Charles Dickens classic, A Calico Christmas Carol. The Bird Cage Theatre will also present the heartwarming Knott's version of O. Henry's classic tale of love and sacrifice, The Gift of the Magi, 1885.

Plus the return of holiday favorites including Snoopy's Night Before Christmas, Santa's Christmas Cabin, Snow and Glow, the Christmas Crafts Village, and more!

Who else loves a classic Snoopy on Ice show?! Me too, me too!

Wishing you all a Happy Holiday season... see you at the Farm!
