Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park updated the anticipated reopening date for the theme park as well as the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel and California Marketplace with a new announcement from Richard Zimmerman, (Chief Executive Officer, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company). The new expectation is an opening in mid-May at the soonest. No announcement has been made regarding the fan-favorite Boysenberry Festival which was originally scheduled to run March 20 – April 19, 2020.

The full announcement dated March 20 follows below.

At Cedar Fair, the safety and well-being of our Guests and Associates are always our top priorities.

As we continue to follow regional and national health directives related to COVID-19, we want to provide the latest update regarding our park schedule. Currently, Knott’s Berry Farm, Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel, and California Marketplace are temporarily closed. It is our hope to reopen those properties mid-May or as soon thereafter as possible. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our associates, our guests, and our communities.

We will continue to work with Guests who have prepaid tickets or booked rooms during the time period of our park closure. Additionally, for existing 2020 Season Passholders who are unable to use their pass during our temporary closure, we will extend your pass by the number of days Knott’s Berry Farm is closed. For ticket inquiries, please contact or for hotel re-bookings contact

We appreciate the support and cooperation of our Guests and Associates during this ever-evolving situation. Your loyalty to our park is invaluable. We look forward to seeing you soon.
