The holidays have arrived and my kiddos are counting down the days to winter break!
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 6th, 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.
1. Take a stroll in the park and enjoy the holiday decorations!
As you walk into the park the streets and buildings are covered in lights. It’s remarkable!
2. 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!
One of my favorite things to do is EAT at the park. Check out the holiday treats
3. Enjoy A Delicious Holiday Treat
One of my favorite things to do is EAT during Merry Farm! Here is a photo recap of some tasty treats I tried at our media preview night.
What?! Yes… Tamales are now available at Knott’s during Merry Farm. ¡Que rico!
Guests of all ages can embrace the joy of Christmas at Knott’s Merry Farm, with classic shows like the Holiday Ice Show featuring Snoopy, the Peanuts Gang and a cast of world class ice skaters, the nightly tree lighting ceremony and The Christmas Carol. Plus stroll through the merry streets of Calico for unique seasonal treats, Santa’s Christmas Cabin, traditional live Christmas Carolers, a Christmas Crafts Village, an enchanting Snow and Glow show with nightly falling snow, and so much more.
Here is the official show schedule!
5. Go to the Calico Tree Lighting Ceremony Located in Calico Park
The Calico Tree Lighting Ceremony is a memorable experience. Christmas carolers invited the audience to sing along to Jingle Bells and other holiday favorites…
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.
7. Let It Snow In Ghost Town!
Every night during Merry Farm, when the sun sets on the Farm, the buildings and paths in Ghost Town’s Main Street and School House Road are filled with glow and snow! Thousands of sparkling lights dance to the beat of Christmas music while snow gently falls in this spectacular one-of-a-kind moment.
In between the holiday shows get on the rides, enjoy some holiday treats, and enjoy the park to the fullest! I hope you enjoy your time at Knott’s Merry Farm as much as we do…
Happy Holidays to you and your family! XO
