Because of the inability to operate the event with the recommended CDC guidelines, Vice President and General Manager of Knott’s Berry Farm Jon Storbeck announced the cancellation in the park’s Aug. 4 update.

“We know that this news is disappointing, but we look forward with great enthusiasm to making 2021 Knott’s Scary Farm our best year ever,” said Storbeck in the update.

The reopening date for the park itself is still unknown, but on Aug. 21, Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel will reopen to guests. In the meantime, guests can visit the California Marketplace, which has several offerings available, including options from select dining and retail.

Along with the hotel’s reopening, guests can also enjoy new outdoor and retail experiences. The Taste of Knott’s event will take place throughout Ghost Town, Fiesta Village and Boardwalk. Guests have the opportunity to celebrate 100 years of classic flavors from around the park, and can enjoy this event on weekends through Sept. 13.
