The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is here at Knott's Berry Farm now through through January 7, 2017! America's first theme park has gotten into the Christmas spirit and transformed into Knott's Merry Farm! There are park-wide lavish decorations, live entertainment, festive food, and a shopping wonderland! Let's countdown FIVE THINGS YOU'LL WANT TO SEE AT KNOTT'S MERRY FARM!

One of my favorite parts of Knott's Merry Farm is the amazing and festive ice show Merry Christmas, Snoopy! starring Snoopy and the gang. My whole family loves the show, but especially Grace adores it! It's always so fun to watch her reactions to this fantastic Christmas show! It plays at the Charles M. Schulz Theatre on select dates during Merry Farm. Be sure to check the daily schedule to see if it's playing during your visit!

On the Calico Mine Stage guests can enjoy the live show It's the Merriest Christmas Show Ever, Charlie Brown! If you pop over to The Camp Snoopy Theater you can enjoy the Peanuts Gang in A Peanuts Guide to Christmas and sing along with a mash-up of favorite holiday tunes! And if you're craving a classic then be sure to visit the historic Bird Cage Theatre to enjoy performances of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol and O. Henry's A Gift of the Magi.

At the recently added Calico Park you can join in the excitement of the tree lighting ceremony. I love the giant Christmas tree! It is beautiful and humongous and makes for a fabulous photo opp! The Calico Bell Choir and Citizens of Calico join together as Dr. Carter tests his newest electrical Christmas invention.

And who says it doesn't snow in Orange County? Well, Knott's Merry Farm makes all my midwest girl dreams come true with the nightly Snow and Glow Show! Every night thousands of sparkling lights dance to the beat of Christmas music while snow gently falls over the paths in Ghost Town's Main Street and School House Road. It really is magical!!!

You'll also want to pop over to Santa's Christmas Cabin to visit with Santa! The Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town is transformed into Santa's Christmas Cabin during the Christmas season.

Not only can you visit with The Big Guy, but you can taste Santa's homemade cookies, delicious pastries and my favorite - fresh roasted nuts! This year there are also hand-made chicken and beef tamales!!! I really could just hang out in Santa's Christmas Cabin the entire day. It smells so good and the decor is so festive! I even saw peppermint cotton candy for sale! You can even purchase a special photo of the occasion to send to family and loved ones!

Mrs. Claus isn't letting Santa have all the fun this year. She's opened up Mrs. Claus' Kitchen and left her trusty bakers in charge. For a nominal fee, kids can decorate one of Mrs. Claus' delicious cookies.

Check out that size of the gingerbread girl cookie! And it was delicious too!

In addition to all the yummy food at Santa's Christmas Cabin, there are yummy holiday treats to be found throughout the park. We had to have the Candy Cane Holiday Churro from the Gourmet Churro Factory. It was almost too pretty to eat . . . but we powered through! On our next visit I need to try the Santa's Milk and Cookies Shake from Grizzly Creek or Coasters. And the Holiday Pizza from Hollywood Hits sounds like it something I would love. It is topped with sliced turkey, stuffing, turkey gravy and sweet cranberry sauce. Wow!

Don't worry if you haven't finished all your Christmas shopping because there are so many unique and one of a kind gifts to be found in Knott's Christmas Crafts Village! Ghost Town has been transformed into a shopping wonderland filled with dozens of local artisans. I especially love watching the chainsaw wood carving demonstrations!

I love all the Christmas decorations everywhere - especially in Ghost Town. It makes me feel all the magic of the holiday season and get in the mood for Christmas! I love just walking around and looking at all the beautiful poinsettias, lights, and sparkly ornaments! If you're just not feeling the holiday mojo this year, I guarantee that walk down Main Street will get you in the mood for some serious holiday cheer!


Knott's Merry Farm is only one of the amazing things about Knott's Berry Farm! There's the Boysenberry Festival in the Spring, Ghost Town Alive in the Summer, Knott's Scary Farm in the Fall, and all the fun you can have year round on the rides!
