Knott’s Berry Farm is planning on reopening in May. Today the Buena Park theme park released a letter from its Vice President & General Manager Jon Storbeck sharing that the “plan is to welcome you back to Knott’s Berry Farm this May.” The reopening will come after the conclusion of the Knott’s Taste of Boysenberry Festival which is running until May 2nd.
An official reopening date has not been released at this time. This comes as the California government works with theme parks to finalize reopening guidelines for theme parks in the state. Recently, the state of California announced that theme parks could begin reopening as soon as April 1st if the county they are in has reached the red tier. The Disneyland Resort recently announced its intent to reopen by the end of April. A specific date for its reopening has not been announced at this time either.
As had been announced before, season passes purchased ahead of the park reopening will be valid for the rest of 2021 and be extended by as many days as the park is closed in 2021 into 2022. DAPS MAGIC will continue to follow this story and provide updates as they become available. What do you think about the reopening of Knott’s Berry Farm in May?

A MESSAGE FROM JON STORBECK, VICE PRESIDENT & GENERAL MANAGER OF KNOTT’S BERRY FARM
March 12, 2021 Update
We are encouraged and excited by the recent announcement that came out of the California Governor’s office regarding the reopening of theme parks in the state. We know that it’s been a long year, and as our most loyal guests, you have been incredibly patient with us as we have navigated through this difficult time together.
As we look forward to reopening our gates, we still have some work to do. From hiring and training new associates to working with Government officials on finalizing guidelines, we will work hard to ensure that we can reopen our park safely for all to enjoy. Our plan is to welcome you back to Knott’s Berry Farm this May.
For now, we are humbled by the astounding response we have received on our Tasting events. Currently, our Taste of Boysenberry Festival is underway and will continue to receive guests as planned until May 2.
As announced earlier this year, season passes purchased prior to park opening will be valid for the remainder of 2021, plus a day-for-day extension in 2022 for the number of days the park was closed in 2021.
We can’t wait to celebrate 100 years of original family fun with you during our Knott’s Anniversary Celebration this summer. We especially look forward to creating new treasured memories as we once again open our gates and welcome our family back to the farm. We’ll see you all real soon!
Vice President & General Manager
