5. Best Wishes
Found in Camp Snoopy, Best Wishes is an adorable show with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the Peanuts gang. During the show they discover the need to give during the holiday season in this small musical production. The show is presented multiple times throughout the day and is great for families with young ones and also the young at heart that love Peanuts.
4. Holiday Hillbilly Spectacular with Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies
They were once brothers. Now they aren’t anymore. However, the Holiday Hillbilly Spectacular lives on with Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies at the Wagon Camp stage during Knott’s Merry Farm. The shows are musically a delight and their performances are hilarious. Check the times guide to see if Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies are playing when visiting Knott’s!
3. Home for the Holidays
Home for the Holidays is a classic song and dance stage show that is reminiscent of Christmas classics like White Christmas or Holiday Inn. It is full of Christmas magic and is a wonderful show to watch with a cup of hot cocoa in the evening. This show is a treasure that should not be missed!
2. Snow and Glow

This includes the music from Home Alone some narration and other beautiful moments with the snow, music, and lights. Snow and Glow is a lovely recreation of a baby Christmas snow.

1. Snoopy’s Night Before Christmas
Snoopy’s Night Before Christmas is Knott’s Merry Farm new ice skating show found in the Walter Knott Theater! This is a fantastic collection of incredible talent, classic Christmas tunes (sometimes in not such a classical way), and some really interesting use of LED Wall technology both around the ice stage and behind it. Join Snoopy and the Peanuts gang with their ice skating and acrobatic friends for this ice spectacular. Also, show up early as this is one of the most popular things at Knott’s Merry Farm during the Christmas season. I am not the only one putting this at the top of the list of things to do!
