With a virtual National Hiring Day set to take place tomorrow, Knott’s Berry Farm confirmed today their intention to return to operation for May 2021. Knott’s previously confirmed that they are getting ready to onboard 1,700 associates for the 2021 season. Candidates can register online here.


Knott’s Berry Farm announces plans to hire 1,700 associates, host virtual Hiring Day

With their current KNOTT’S TASTE OF BOYSENBERRY festival (see our review/pictorial here) scheduled to conclude on May 2, it’s expected the park could see a return to some form of normal operation shortly (or immediately) thereafter. Neighboring Disneyland Resort is expected to be open by late April.

The full statement follows below.

We are encouraged and excited by the recent announcement that came out of the California Governor’s office regarding the reopening of theme parks in the state. We know that it’s been a long year, and as our most loyal guests, you have been incredibly patient with us as we have navigated through this difficult time together

As we look forward to reopening our gates, we still have some work to do. From hiring and training new associates, to working with Government officials on finalizing guidelines, we will work hard to ensure that we can reopen our park safely for all to enjoy. Our plan is to welcome you back to Knott’s Berry Farm this May.

For now, we are humbled by the astounding response we have received on our Tasting events. Currently our Taste of Boysenberry Festival is underway and will continue to receive guests as planned until May 2.

As announced earlier this year, season passes purchased prior to park opening will be valid for the remainder of 2021, plus a day-for-day extension in 2022 for the number of days the park was closed in 2021.

We can’t wait to celebrate 100 years of original family fun with you during our Knott’s Anniversary Celebration this summer. We especially look forward to creating new treasured memories as we once again open our gates and welcome our family back to the farm. We’ll see you all real soon!

See it for Yourself

Knott’s Berry Farm National Hiring Day event takes place online on Saturday, March 13, 2021. An official reopening date for the park has not yet been announced.
