New Year’s Day

While there’s no special festivities planned for New Year’s Day in the park (outside of the regularly scheduled entertainment) there’s still some Knott’s magic to be found on January 1, 2020.

Rose Parade 2020!

Knott’s Berry Farm will showcase an equestrian unit in the 131st Rose Parade presented by Honda held in Pasadena, California! Starring in the equestrian unit, will be the theme park’s very first ride, the Butterfield Stagecoach, which has been in continuous operation since 1949. Riding the Stagecoach will be a representation of Knott’s Ghost Town Alive! characters who occupy the town of Calico, in Knott’s Ghost Town themed area. Following behind will be none other than the famous beagle himself, Snoopy, whom, along with the other peanuts characters, have been the park’s mascots since 1983.

More In 2020


The year 2020 marks a great milestone for Knott’s Berry Farm, as 100 years ago Walter and Cordelia Knott started farming land in Southern California, where the family sold berries, preserves and pies from a roadside stand along State Route 39. To celebrate 100 years of rich history and family legacy, the theme park will host its biggest celebration yet, with the “Knott’s Family Reunion” taking place this summer at Knott’s Berry Farm.
