Knott’s Berry Farm is getting a Build-A-Bear Workshop! Filling up the gap left once the Downtown Disney location closed in early 2018, the new shop will revive the brand in an area that is otherwise mostly devoid of the friendly familiar cuddly cuties.

The brand new Build-A-Bear Workshop opens January 28, 2020 and will will be located in the California Market Place, behind Virginia’s Gift Shop and Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant.

To honor the park’s Old Western theme, the new location will feature an exclusive line of customizable cowboy, cowgirl and train conductor themed bears. To tie in with the park’s Seasons of Fun events, custom products and limited edition accessories will also be available for the furry friends starting off with a special t-shirt on opening day.  A special Build-A-Bear and Knott’s Berry Farm photo-opportunity will be displayed in front of the store location for families to capture and share those memorable bear selfies and pictures.

Build-A-Bear Workshop officially opens at Knott’s Berry Farm on January 28, 2020.
