Ghost Town Alive!
Hoedown in Calico Square
There is a nightly showdown in Calico square that takes place at 5:30pm nightly. During the hoedown there is also a serpentine parade where everyone marches through Ghost town. It is a lot of fun and the characters love to march with your kids!

Cameo Kate’s Western Burle-Q Review
This show is high-energy with lots of tap dancing and a live band! It is hard not to smile when watching as there is humor and elaborate vintage costumes as well.
DJ Lance Rock
All-new in the Walter Knott Theater, DJ Lance Rock (of Nick Jr.’s award-winning show, Yo Gabba Gabba), brings his love of music, funky beats and family fun to the farm. During Knott’s Berry Farm Presents DJ Lance Rock, DJ Lance and his friends will take you on a musical journey that combines his passion for music, dance, play and education through two separate shows, Let’s Play! and Everybody Dance.

By using his imagination, DJ Lance Rock finds a way to invent a day full of fun and play for everyone. Everybody Dance is an interactive show where DJ Lance Rock engages the audience through song and dance, while teaching the importance of staying active. Singing and dancing his way through his neighborhood, DJ Lance Rock’s imagination helps spread and inspire good vibes, good music and big fun with the audience. So come along to the farm this summer to sing and dance with DJ Lance Rock and make memories that last!

Summer Food Options
In my opinion, the best part of going to an amusement park is the food! And Knott’s definitely does not disappoint. Have a look at Laura, the food and beverage manager discuss all the different food options available this summer! So far my favorite has been the old bay elote! It is delicious.
Ghost Town Alive Summer Merchandise Options
You’re gonna want to grab your lassoes and rope in some of this year’s merchandise because water bottles are the hottest thing this year! They have wood water bottles and sheriff’s hats with built-in snoopy ears!
Knott’s Summer Nights
You won’t want to miss all the live music offered in the evenings. Especially the DJ! It’s so fun to watch the crowd dance and see all the little kids get into a groove! The crowd goes crazy and it’s so fun to cheer them on. Here is DJ Sandy shores DJ’ing on the roof of the boardwalk shop.
Each weekend has a different lineup. One of our favorites is the band Hiatus. Hiatus is a band made up of professional studio musicians. They were originally brought together to perform at a theme park, and quickly became a family. When the show was put on hiatus, and ultimately closed, they didn’t want to stop performing together. Hiatus was born from their joy in music and super close friendships.
