Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and all of their comic-strip pals are taking over Knott’s Berry Farm for the first ever park-wide Knott’s Peanuts Celebration starting on Jan. 27, 2018.
The Knott’s Peanuts Celebration, an all-new seasonal event dedicated to celebrating the Peanuts characters, invites guests to step inside the pages of a Charles M. Schulz comic strip as the characters take over the entire Knott’s Berry Farm theme park for the very first time. The newly introduced event will take place on weekends beginning Jan. 27 through Feb. 25, 2018, plus Presidents Day, February 19. The limited time celebration introduces new ways for guests to play and interact with the Peanuts Gang throughout the park. The event will feature special Peanuts inspired décor, new comic strip photo ops, new character experiences, live shows, exclusive merchandise and themed treats.
One-of-a-kind photo opportunities will be available throughout the park allowing guests to pose alongside their favorite characters or step into a Peanuts comic strip. The décor will include full size comic strip props like Charlie Brown’s kites and the iconic kite eating trees which will adorn the park’s pathways. Guests will have the chance to meet with the Peanuts characters throughout the day as the characters appear at unexpected locations for special interactions.
Camp Snoopy Theater presents an all-new show where Lucy and Charlie put their talents to the test in Lucy and Charlie’s Balancing Act. Also in Camp Snoopy, the Grand Sierra Railroad invites kids to celebrate with the Peanuts Gang as they head to the Beagle Bonanza in this new ride overlay.
The Peanuts Sketch School, held inside the Birdcage Theatre, include our resident art teacher who will provide step by step instructions on how to draw Peanuts characters. After class is dismissed, a special showing of a classic Peanuts television special will be shown in the theatre.
Franklin and Linus are on a Western escapade as they transform into cowboys in the new Peanuts Cowboy Jamboree at Calico Park. The boys are looking to challenge guests with some of the rootinest, tootinest games in Calico. Also in Ghost Town, Charlie Brown’s messy pal, Pig Pen will be making his Knott’s Berry Farm debut as he hosts a special meetup at the Livery Stables with some animal friends.
The Knott’s Peanuts Celebration continues at the Calico Mine Stage where the Peanuts characters have two all-new musical performances for guests. During the day Sally and Schroder will host a retrospect of music in The Music Goes Round and Round. At nightfall the stage will transform into a musical extravaganza as the park presents the first ever Woodstock’s Musical Festival. The musical event will feature the Peanuts Gang joined by the family-friendly indie band The Jelly of the Month Club, performing a rock concert for the whole family. And Lucy and Sally’s Fiesta Fantasy will bring lively music, traditional costumes and live Mexican dance performances to the Fiesta Village stage.
