Jon Storbeck, Vice President & General Manager of Knott’s Berry Farm shared an update about the state of Knott’s Berry Farm for the upcoming few months. Perhaps the biggest news is the official cancelation of the 2020 Knott’s Scary Farm event. Below the updates to expect for Knott’s Berry Farm:

2020 Knott’s Scary Farm Canceled

Regrettably, due to continued operating restrictions related to the pandemic, we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel our highly anticipated 2020 Knott’s Scary Farm event. The unique features of Scary Farm will not allow us to operate within the constraints recommended by the CDC and public health experts.  We know that this news is disappointing, but we look forward with great enthusiasm to making 2021 Knott’s Scary Farm our best year ever.

August 21 Updates

Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel will reopen for lodging.  Guests may learn more about special Taste of Knott’s hotel packages at

Looking Ahead

Knott’s Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair, our all-new 4D interactive dark ride that celebrates a beloved classic attraction with a reimagined gaming twist.  Guests will climb aboard themed vehicles equipped with “jelly blasters” to try to recover stolen boysenberry pies as they travel through whimsical environments such as the Boysenberry Pie Factory, Frog Forest, Fortune Teller Camp and Weird Woods.  The ride culminates in a celebration at the County Fair.

Also in 2021, the rescheduled Knott’s 100th Anniversary celebration!
