Knott’s Berry Farm Closes Due to Tropical Storm Hilary

Hilary is no longer a hurricane but as a tropical storm, she is still having quite the impact. As the storm heads toward California, Knott’s Berry Farm has announced that it will be remaining closed on Sunday, August 20, 2023. The following statement could be found on the Knott’s Berry Farm website:

Due to Hurricane Hilary, Knott’s Berry Farm, Knott’s Soak City, and the California Marketplace will be closed today, Aug 20. Any Knott’s Berry Farm ticket dated for today can be used any one public operating day thru 12/31/23. Any Soak City ticket dated for today can be used any operating day thru 10/1/23.

The closure comes after Tropical Storm Hilary is expected to hit Southern California later in the day. It could bring as much rain in one day during one storm as generally comes in an entire year. Depending on where in Southern California, there could be anywhere from 2 to 10 inches of rain coming down. Early in the morning, rain began to come down in the region.

Knott’s Berry Farm isn’t the only place that is closing due to Hilary. The following locations also announced that they would be closed or cancel events due to Tropical Storm Hilary:
