The 2023 Knotts Berry Farm Peanuts Celebration is one of the best family events of the year beginning January 28th – February 26th, 2023. This immersive experience is unlike any other at Knotts.
During the Knott’s Peanuts Celebration, the park is taken over by all the Peanuts characters strategically placed in different areas throughout the park. There are fun-themed activities, shows, meet & greets, and treats for the entire family.
Check out this year’s line-up for the 2023 Knott’s Peanut Celebration!
Knott’s Peanut Celebration Treats
There are tasty treats throughout the park featuring fun Peanuts Character themes. You’ll find adorable cupcakes, the new Berry French Toast Funnel Cake, Carrot Cake Churros with cream cheese filling, Cubano Panini, Cornbread Funnel Cake with honey & pulled pork, and carnitas, pineapple, jalapeno stuffed baked potato just to name a few!
Knotts Berry Farm Peanuts Celebration Entertainment
Each year there is an endless amount of entertainment for all ages. My favorite is always the Sketch School. The PEANUTS Sketch School will include Knotts’s resident art teacher, providing step-by-step instructions to easily create the perfect PEANUTS masterpiece.
Also in Bird Cage Theatre is Charlie Brown’s Trivia Challenge, where guests test their knowledge of the PEANUTS universe.
Calico Mine Stage Performances
At the Calico Mine Stage, the PEANUTS characters will perform the musical game show “It’s Your Life, Charlie Brown”, with the loveable title character getting the surprise of his life. There will be music, fun, and surprise guests, including the world’s most famous beagle, Snoopy.
The stage will transform at nightfall as the park hosts Snoopy’s Legendary Rooftop Concert. The Peanuts Gang has teamed up with the family-friendly indie band, The Jelly of the Month Club, for a high-energy spectacle sure to have everyone dancing.
Meet-Up with Franklin, Linus, & Pig Pen
One thing I love about Knott’s Peanut Celebration is how interactive it is. It’s not like other parks where there is a long line to meet characters. The characters come out and play games and actually spend time with the kids.
A western escapade occurs at Calico Park with Franklin and Linus as they transform into cowboys in the PEANUTS Cowboy Jamboree. The boys are looking to challenge guests with some of Calico’s root-toot-tooniest games.
Also in Ghost Town is Pigpen’s Pig Pen, where everyone’s favorite messy pal will be joining the rest of the PEANUTS Gang as he hosts a special meetup at the Livery Stables with some of his animal friends.
Snoopy Soars with Nasa
At Calico’s Town Hall, guests will see stars with the exhibit, To The Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA, featuring the world’s most famous beagle and his long relationship with our nation’s space administration. Plus, visitors have the chance to meet Snoopy himself and snap an out-of-this-world photo!
Railroad Adventure & The James Street Trio
Those who hop aboard the Grand Sierra Railroad can experience a one-of-a-kind adventure as riders travel with the PEANUTS Gang to the Beagle Bonanzain this fun ride overlay.
More musical enjoyment can be found at Boardwalk BBQ, where guests can grab a seat (and a plate!) to enjoy the smooth sounds of The James Street Trio that will transport them to the hometown of the PEANUTS Gang with this tribute to the music of Vince Guaraldi.

Knotts Season Passes
Knotts season passes are still the best value. For less than one park hopper ticket at Disneyland, you could get an annual pass to Knotts Berry Farm. It’s a no brainer! An all-season dining pass is only $149 a year and offers two meals each time you visit the park.
