Knott's Berry Farm is extending its Taste of Calico special event, as the prospect for a summer return of Southern California theme parks continues to diminish.
The Buena Park, Calif. theme park kicked off this hard-ticket event last weekend, which opens the park's Ghost Town area for a modified food festival. Since theme parks are not currently allowed to operate in California, Knott's is promoting the event as an outdoor restaurant experience, which are now allowed under the state's coronavirus restrictions. Selected retail stores will be open with limited capacities, but all rides and shows in the park will be closed during the event.
Guests must buy a tasting card in advance in order to be admitted to the event. Initially, Knott's planned two weekends for Taste of Calico, but after the first weekend sold out, and it became clear that state approval was not imminent for the entire park to return, Knott's is adding two more weekends: July 31-August 2, and August 7-9.
Tasting cards are date specific and cost $25 plus tax for five tastings. A kids' card is $15 plus tax and includes three tastings. You can see Knott's menu for the event in our original post. The event starts at noon each day and runs through 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 8pm on Sundays. Tickets are available on Knott's Berry Farm's website.Tweet
