Knott’s Berry Farm at Christmas and New Year’s Eve!

  What I love about Knott’s Berry Farm, is that you can enjoy all of the Christmas festivities and decorations, while ushering in the New Year’s Eve with a warm wholesome environment for the whole family.

With special fireworks, live entertainment, and extended hours, plus Knott’s signature rides and attractions, Knott’s New Year’s Eve celebration is the place to ring in 2017.
