Thank you Knott’s Berry Farm for inviting us to attend Knott’s Merry Farm Media Day this past weekend. We had a great time getting into the holiday spirit while visiting the park.
Knott’s Merry Farm will be open from November 17, 2017 through January 7, 2018. Once you walk through the turnstiles you will feel like you escaped into a small town country Christmas. You will be able to do some holiday shopping in the Christmas Crafts Village. We saw apron booths, carved wood, blown glass, wood signs and so much more. There is something to be found for everyone on your list.
There are twinkling lights and holiday décor throughout the park to get you in the festive mood. You won’t want to miss the Calico Tree Lighting Ceremony in Calico Park.
Be sure to stop by Santa’s Christmas Cabin in the Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town to have a special visit with Santa Claus.
Treat yourself to one-of-kind seasonal treats like Santa’s freshly-baked cookies, mouthwatering pastries, exquisite chocolate-dipped cheesecake on a stick, seasonal craft beers, gourmet hot chocolate with marshmallows and hot spiced holiday wine, plus much more.
There are so many live performance shows throughout the day, you will have to plan your day carefully to be able to see everything. We enjoyed watching the Calico Saloon Christmas Show in the Christmas Saloon.

This year we were able to stay and watch the Calico Tree Lighting ceremony and the Snow in Ghost Town.
As we left for the day, we once again said to one another that even though we didn’t go on a single ride while we were there, we genuinely enjoyed celebrating the start of the holiday season.
