Guests also will have the opportunity to meet Knott's all‐new lovable costumed characters and enjoy special evening entertainment as Knott's Summer Nights returns with live music, DJs and one‐of‐a‐kind food and drink specialties. In addition, the theme park is planning a nightly ceremony featuring multiple attractions lighting up the evening and culminating in a special moment with the redesigned illuminated K‐ tower. Guests also will find festive new park décor, including special photo settings that pay homage to favorite attractions from the past and commemorative merchandise celebrating the park's vast history. These are just a few of the many special surprises that can only come from your friends at Knott's.

The anniversary celebration runs through September 6, 2021. In accordance with current state guidelines, capacity will be limited and available to California residents only with reservations required for both single‐day visits and Season Passholders.
