Everything You Need to Know About PEANUTS Celebration at Knott's Berry Farm - Knott's Entrance

PEANUTS Celebration activities are available daily, from Jan. 28 through Feb. 26, 2023. Previously, the celebration only took place on weekends (and holidays). This year, Knott's Berry Farm's calendar shows it is hoppening every day in 2023. However, you may see fewer entertainment options and characters during the week. Some special food items may only be available on the weekends. Park hours also vary based on the date, so make sure to check the Knott's Berry Farm app before planning your trip. You can find shows and events taking place during the celebration in the app as well. We always recommend arriving before the park opens to experience the shortest lines and smallest crowds of the day.
