Knott's New Year's fun and food drive

Knott’s Berry Farm will have something for the entire family this New Year’s Eve with a variety of dance music, family friendly comedy, a Midnight Mayhem Pyrotechnic Show in Calico Square, the Grammy nominated newsboys in concert and all Knott’s rides and attractions open until 1 a.m.

Headlining the evening will be a special performance by the Christian rock group, newsboys. One of the most popular Christian music artists of the past two decades, the newsboys have released 14 studio albums including "In the Hands of God," which was released this past May. The music of the newsboys has even reached space with NASA using the newsboys song "In Wonder" as the space shuttle’s wake-up song this past November.

But that is not all that is going on this New Year’s Eve at Knott’s Rock On Ride On. You will want to put on your dancing shoes and get on the dance floor as Knott’s rolls out not one, but several dance parties throughout the park. Get some salsa instruction in Knott’s Fiesta Plaza, try your hand at ballroom dancing in Knott’s Boardwalk Ballroom, or learn a little line dancing in Knott’s Wilderness Dance Hall. There will be dancing in the streets with music everywhere with something for everyone.

The whole family will enjoy a special performance of "Snoopy on Ice" and Bone Hampton, a family friendly comedian. In addition, Camp Snoopy will be open with rides and shows for the young and the young at heart.

At midnight, the sky will be ablaze with color in Calico Square as we ring in the New Year the Midnight Mayhem Pyrotechnic Show. Tickets for the Rock On Ride On New Year’s Eve are $37.99 (Regular) and $17.99 (Juniors/Seniors). Knott’s Annual Pass holders receive free admission. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.knotts.com.


During these challenging economic times there are a record number of families in need of assistance. Recognizing the growing need in the community, Knott’s Berry Farm has once again partnered with the Orange County Food Bank to help fight hunger in Southern California. This year marks Knott’s Berry Farm’s ninth year coordinating the food drive that feeds thousands in the Orange County area.

To adequately serve the growing list of those in need, Knott’s Berry Farm is asking every guest to donate 2 or more cans at the park January 4-31 and in return will offer a Regular adult admission for the price of a Junior ($23.99) . This special discount offer saves $30 off of the Regular admission which is $53.99 for adults (over age 11).

The collected food will be used by the Orange County Food Bank to help meet the needs of Southern California’s most destitute families and to collect needed donations beyond the traditional holiday period when the need is great and food supply is low. For more information on assisting those in need throughout the community, please contact the Orange County Food Bank at (714) 897-6670.
