Holiday Guide To Planning Your Visit At Knott’s Merry Farm



The holidays have arrived and my kiddos are counting down the days to winter break…

Earlier this month, I headed to Knott’s Merry Farm with the kids. Knott’s definitely knows how to put the Merry in Christmas, and there is just so many incredible things to do during this joyous celebration. It was a magical experience to see how our beloved theme park has transformed into a winter wonderland. Merry Farm is open now through January 7th, and is a great spot to visit during the holiday season with your entire family.

Spend the most wonderful time of the year with your family at Knott’s Merry Farm enjoying thrilling attractions, live entertainment, a Christmas crafts fair, festive food, lavish holiday decorations, and nightly snow in Ghost Town.

Here’s a holiday guide to help you enjoy your visit to Knott’s Merry Farm to the fullest.


Thank you Knott’s Berry Farm for inviting my family to Merry Farm. All Opinions are my own.


Drool Alert!

Stop At Wilderness Dance Hall For a Treat and a Picture with Santa

Santa’s warm cookies and milk are always a special treat during the holidays… Indulge in one-of-kind seasonal treats like mouthwatering pastries, exquisite chocolate dipped cheesecake on a stick, seasonal craft beers, gourmet hot chocolate with marshmallows and hot spiced holiday wine, plus much more.

Don’t forget to visit Santa and take a pic!


This Hot Chocolate with marshmallows hit the spot…




What?! Yes… Tamales are now available at Knott’s during Merry Farm. ¡Que rico!


Go to the Calico Tree Lighting Ceremony at 5:15 p.m- Located in Calico Park

The Calico Tree Lighting Ceremony was a memorable experience. Christmas carolers invited the audience to sing along to Jingle Bells and other holiday favorites… holiday-shopping-knott's

Head to Ghost Town for some holiday shopping

I found some unique gifts at Knott’s Christmas Crafts Village and fell in love with these adorable Christmas Tree ornaments.

Ghost Town transforms into a shopping wonderland filled with dozens of local artisans selling their unique gifts. Can’t-miss highlights of the Village include artist demonstrations of chainsaw wood carving and elegant glass blowing.
