by Mommy Frog on January 27, 2024 9 Los Angeles

Everything You Need to Know About PEANUTS Celebration at Knott's Berry FarmEvery year, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the PEANUTS gang start off the new year by taking over the entire park during the Knott’s Berry Farm PEANUTS Celebration! From Jan. 27 to Feb. 25, 2024, tadpoles and their parents are invited to experience all things PEANUTS through this colorful celebration that immerses guests into the famous comic strip.

Our frog squad always has a wonderful time hopping into the memorable world of the PEANUTS gang at the Knott's PEANUTS Celebration. We've packed this guide with all the needed details to plan your upcoming visit. The event produces plenty of nostalgia for us older frogs who grew up watching and reading about the PEANUTS gang, and the tadpoles love it too.

When we visited Knott's during the PEANUTS Celebration, we were able to meet plenty of characters in the park, try new foods — including every mac and cheese dish —  and experience frogciting entertainment. Keep reading for a full rundown of the new family-friendly shows, tasty eats and comic-strip-themed décor found throughout the park!

Knott’s PEANUTS Celebration Dates & Hours 

PEANUTS Celebration at Knott's Berry Farm - Front entrance

PEANUTS Celebration activities are available daily, from Jan. 27 through Feb. 25, 2024. Previously, the celebration only took place on weekends (and holidays). This year, it is hoppening every day in 2024. However, you may see fewer entertainment options and characters during the week. Some special food items may also only be available on the weekends. Park hours 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. Access the event guide here.

PEANUTS Characters

There are new and exciting ways to see and interact with the PEANUTS gang during the PEANUTS Celebration. The PEANUTS pals are generally out and about around the park between park opening and 5 p.m. During that time, you can greet Snoopy (at Town Hall), and the rest of the crew, with a hug or a high five!

Don't miss Pig-Pen’s Pig Pen at the Livery Stable. Say hello to horses, donkeys, piglets and Pig-Pen himself while you are there. This is a great stop in the middle of Ghost Town.

Just around the corner from Calico Park, you can play with Linus at the PEANUTS Cowboy Jamboree. Froglets are invited to play games from the Wild, Wild West.

Although this experience may only be available on weekends, a daily schedule of these activities can be found on the Knott's Berry Farm app.

While you are in there you can also grab a pencil and paper to trace PEANUTS characters at the light table to create your own comic strip. Even Franklin gave it a try!

Knott's Food Specialties

PEANUTS Celebration at Knott's Berry Farm - Charlie Brownie

There are plenty of frogtastic treats throughout the park specifically made for the PEANUTS Celebration. It's easy to find themed cookies and treats at eateries around the park. Other foods offered may have a PEANUTS connection by name alone but are still delectable. Look out for blue food offerings signs at all dining locations throughout the park. These signify that the establishment sells special PEANUTS Celebration items.

The All-Day Dining Plan offers guests the ability to enjoy a meal every 90 minutes they are in the park. It can save you a lot of money on food in the park. Even a single meal deal can save you some cash. Learn more about it in our Knott's Berry Farm food guide. You can also purchase the deal (through Knott's) using your Undercover Tourist ticket savings and eat for free all day long!

PEANUTS Celebration at Knott's Berry Farm - Tasting card and straw

There is a dining and tasting card for PEANUTS Celebration 2024: It's $45 (plus tax) for six tastes. Each tasting card comes with a PEANUTS character straw. We got Franklin. You can purchase the card at dining locations. Most of the tastes we saw were about $10 to $15, so if you really want to try a lot of mac and cheese dishes, this card will save you money. Tasting card portions are full portions but without a side.

It’s the Great Mac and Cheese, Charlie Brown! We hope you like Mac and Cheese because that is the theme for the food this year. Meals included on the dining plan are followed by an asterisk (*) Items on the tasting card have a TC after them.

Hello! Wonderful article. My wife and I will be going Saturday February 3rd and we’re wondering if the all day dining package is allowed during the Peanuts festival.

Hi Mack!

You can only use the All-Day Dining Plan at participating locations throughout the park (look for the Dining Plan symbol). Special events foods are not typically included.

Hoppy planning!

Hello! Husband and I are planning our first trip to Knott's Berry Farm specifically for the Peanuts Celebration. We have a choice of Thursday or Friday to go. Any thoughts on when there may be more celebration activities?

Hi Sarah!

Saturday and Sunday are usually the days with the most entertainment, so either option would likely be about the same in terms of entertainment (pick whichever fits your schedule best). You can go into the Knott's Berry Farm app and tap "Shows & Events" to look up the schedule for the day that you visit.

Hoppy planning!
