PEANUTS Celebration at Knott's Berry Farm

Woodstock with musician on stage at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA

When you join the PEANUTS gang at the annual PEANUTS Celebration at Knott’s Berry Farm, you’ll find yourself fully immersed in the iconic world of the Charles M. Schultz comic strips. This PEANUTS-themed celebration takes place on weekends from January 25-March 1, 2020 and truly brings these characters to life as soon as you enter Knott’s Berry Farm. From themed food offerings to character meet-and-greets to brand-new PEANUTS shows, it’s the perfect time to visit!

From the moment you arrive, you’ll encounter Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Peppermint Patty, Linus and other members of the PEANUTS gang throughout the park. Smile for photos with your favorite character or pose in front of a comic strip backdrop to become a comic strip character yourself. Life-sized props like Charlie Brown’s kite and his famous thought bubbles will add a pop of whimsy to your Instagram pics.

For the most epic photo op of the PEANUTS Celebration, be sure to visit on Sunday, February 2 when Charlie Brown fans get decked out in Charlie Brown’s signature outfit—bright yellow zig-zag striped tee, black shorts and red baseball cap. This massive gathering of Charlie Browns will head to the Calico Mine Stage for a photo with Charlie Brown himself.

You’ll find the whole park transformed into a PEANUTS wonderland and the best way to check it out is from a ride in Sky Cabin that has morphed into Woodstock’s Bird’s-Eye View. Then head to the Ghost Town where everyone’s favorite messy pal, Pigpen, will host a special meetup at the Livery Stables with some of his favorite animal friends. In Calico Park you can take on Franklin and Linus in some rowdy cowboy games at the PEANUTS Cowboy Jamboree.

Stage performances throughout the PEANUTS Celebration will bring the uplifting messages of Charlie Brown to audiences of all ages. The Calico Mine Stage hosts the brand-new daytime show HAPPINESS IS . . . where Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Peppermint Patty and Linus perform a medley of popular songs about fun, laughter and the true bonds of friendship. At night, the stage transforms into the musical extravaganza of Woodstock’s Musical Festival. The PEANUTS gang is joined by the family-friendly indie band The Jelly of the Month Club for a rock celebration that will have everyone dancing.

Dancing is also the name of the game at Fiesta Village where guests strap on headphones for the Discoteca de Silencio. This silent disco will be hosted by Snoopy’s brother Spike and it will be the most fun you can have while being quiet—guaranteed!

Young guests will especially enjoy their visit to Camp Snoopy during the PEANUTS Celebration where they can ride the Beagle Bonanza at the Grand Sierra Railroad. The Camp Snoopy Theater hosts Space Beagle, a story with Charlie Brown and Lucy where the world’s most famous beagle becomes the first dog on the moon.

Head to Calico’s Town Hall to see the Pigskin PEANUTS Exhibit, organized by the Charles M. Schulz Museum. This exhibit chronicles PEANUTS’ football-themed storylines and traces the origins of the most iconic PEANUTS gag—Lucy pulling away the football from Charlie Brown.

After you’ve seen some of the PEANUTS history, learn cartooning skills at the PEANUTS Sketch School where the resident art teacher will guide aspiring cartoonists through the steps needed to create their very own PEANUTS comic strip.
