Knott’s Berry Farm’s Fun Festival Lineup for 2022

Knott’s Berry Farm has released its schedule for all the seasonal festivals in 2022. All the traditional and fun seasons are coming back, and knowing Knott’s there will be some additions in each that will be a treat to see.

It kicks off with the PEANUTS Celebration starting January 22 and running until March 6. One thing to note is that this will be a daily celebration where sometimes some things run on weekends. Everything will be Snoopy and the gang-inspired including food and decor. Returning entertainment such as the sketch school will take place.

Then, starting March 18 and until April 24, the fan favorite Boysenberry Festival will take place. The culinary team always has some tasty tricks up their sleeve to savor all the festival has to offer.

Summer-time, which is May 20-September 5, will host two events: Ghost Town Alive! and Summer Nights. This means a whole day of fun with two different themes taking place at the park. Soak City will also be part of the Summer festivities and will reopen May 28 until September 11.

Scary Farm will come alive…or unalive…starting September 22 and be on select nights until October 31. Spooky Farm will also make its return beginning October 1 and run until October 30 on the weekends, with an additional day on Halloween.

Last but not least is Merry Farm which comes back on November 18, running until January 1, 2023. It has been said on the official Knott’s Berry Farm podcast that a brand new ice show will debut during this festive time of year. In addition is the wonderful Crafts Village and numerous other holiday entertainment throughout the park.

There will not be a dull moment at Knott’s Berry Farm this year. And I always bang the drum on grabbing a Season Pass to keep going back. It is hard to pack everything in on one festival day. With there being 5 different seasonal celebrations it really means coming back again and again!
