Can you believe it’s going to be November in a week?

The year is flying by and the holiday season is here! One of our favorite yearly traditions is a visit to Knott’s Merry Farm. A Southern California Holiday Tradition since 1985, Knott’s Berry Farm’s seasonal event Knott’s Merry Farm celebrates the Christmas season November 22 through January 4, 2015. The holiday event includes park-wide lavish decorations, live entertainment, festive food, and a shopping wonderland filled with local artisans.

Knott’s Berry Farm’s culinary elves have created delicious festive treats including Santa’s homemade cookies, sundae bar, decadent hot chocolate topped with hand carved chocolate shavings, and winter wine and craft beer tastings. Savor the ultimate comfort foods with Knott’s world famous desserts, including fresh made-to-order Maple Lollipops, churros from the Churro Factory, cakes, cookies, muffins and gingerbread men in the Farm Bakery, as well as the legendary cooking at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant.


Introduced in 2013, the Ghost Town and Calico Railroad celebrate Christmas on Engine 41.

Climb aboard a vintage rail car and meet an ever-changing group of Ghost Town residents eager to share their Christmas plans and songs with you. Ghost Town also celebrates of the sounds of the season with its very own Dickensian vocal quartet, Calico Carolers and interactive country Christmas blue grass quartet, the Ghost Town Miners.
