What You Need to Know for the Knott's PEANUTS Celebration

The PEANUTS characters have long been park icons at Knott’s Berry Farm theme park. To show their appreciation for Charles M. Schulz and his beloved animated creations, Knott’s will be kicking off this year’s PEANUTS Celebration from January 27 – February 25, 2024. Here’s What You Need to Know for the PEANUTS Celebration this year!

Park-Wide Entertainment
Venture over to the Calico Mine Stage for It’s Your Life, Charlie Brown where Charlie Brown tests his luck in a game show format with upbeat music, surprise guests, and his pal Snoopy.

Channel Your Inner Artist & Test Your Knowledge
At the Bird Cage Theater, park visitors can take part in PEANUTS Sketch School, an animation workshop where resident park artists will teach you how to sketch members of the PEANUTS Gang. You may want to visit this location a few times throughout the day to see how many different characters you get the chance to draw. At the same location, Charlie Brown's Trivia Challenge will also take place, where fans of the PEANUTS Gang can see just how much they know about their favorite characters.

Unique Character Experiences
Throughout the day, members of the PEANUTS Gang will be walking around the park, always excited to make your acquaintance. Pig Pen can often be found at the Livery Stable, ever prepared to snap a photo with you. In Calico Park, guests can play at the Peanuts Cowboy Jamboree with Linus and Franklin. Horse races, horseshoe tosses, and other activities can be found in this area. Be sure to check the Knott’s Berry Farm app for a daily schedule of character meet-and-greets. And keep an eye out at all times, because you never know who may make a surprise appearance. Be sure to check the Knott's Berry Farm mobile app for experiences and showtimes that can vary daily.

Sweets and Eats
The PEANUTS Celebration always boasts a long list of themed eats, treats, and beverages at locations throughout the park that are specific to the festival. Keep an eye out for their 2024 foodie guide that will be dropped prior to opening day.

Instagrammable Photo Opportunities
Photo opportunities of famous scenes from the comic strips are available for your Instagramming pleasure. Take a photo with Charlie Brown and his football, Linus and his blanket, Snoopy looking for a kiss, and speech bubble exclamations with iconic PEANUTS catchphrases to truly immerse yourself in the PEANUTS universe.

Limited Time Opportunities
At Calico Town Hall, visit the Franklin exhibit, which showcases the beloved member of the PEANUTS gang and his importance to both history and pop culture. His first appearance in the comics was back in 1968 where he befriended Charlie Brown while on a trip to the beach. Franklin will also be hanging around his exhibit, read to snap a photo with his adoring fans.
Maximize Your Time
Skip the line all day long with a Fast Lane Pass, which gives you priority access to all your favorite attractions like HangTime, GhostRider, Silver Bullet, Supreme Scream, and more. Be sure to view the Fast Lane Availability Calendar to ensure it will be offered the day of your visit. Please note that Fast Lane is not offered daily, as it is dependent on crowd levels of the day.

Leave Cash at Home
Knott’s Berry Farm is a cashless theme park, meaning that all cashiers throughout the park and at the parking booths will only accept credit, debit, or a smart device with Apple Pay or Google Pay in place of cash. If for any reason you only have cash or forgot your card at home, no need to fret, there are cash-to-card kiosks where you can load cash onto a card with any amount between $1 to $500.
