The reimagined transformation of Fiesta Village has finally opened at Knott’s Berry Farm! The refreshed land brings new Hispanic influences to rides, shows, merchandise, and food. Mariachi music, storytelling, and Bob Baker Marionette Puppet Show performances will play on the newly designed Fiesta Plaza outdoor stage.

The Peanuts gang also gets into the spirit of meeting their fans while wearing traditional garments. Previous attractions have received new paint and color schemes stringing a consistent theme throughout the land. Areas surrounding the Aztec pyramid, market, and Alebrijes Gardens offer distant sections within the land evoking a sense of discovery around every turn. Returning rides include Jaguar!, Sol Spin, Carrusel de California, La Revolución, Hat Dance, Dragon Swing, and Los Voladores. MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress will open at a later date.

Water features, mosaic tile artwork, fresh landscaping, structural enhancements, and giant brightly colorful Alebrijes add elemental touches that refresh previously stagnant areas.

The new nighttime street party, Calle Celebración, enlightens themes of family and community with color, music, dancing, stilt walkers, and oversized puppets. Set to the backdrop of moving projections and pyrotechnics atop the Jaguar roller coaster temple.

The food and drinks make a bigger and better impression now than it has in years past. A lot of focus went into upgrading the menu, locations, and seating for a more appealing dining experience. Baja Taqueria between the Hat Dance and La Revolución rides serves esquite and street tacos.

Taco proteins include fish, shrimp, beef, or mushrooms. Request the tasty taco sauce served on the side as it was a bit overwhelming. This is a huge improvement over the hot dogs that were previously part of the menu here. By the Fiesta Plaza, Papas Mexicanas will serve up carne asada fries and elote fries. Casa California Restaurante makes significant changes to the building occupants that were here.

The old arcade is now indoor seating while the store is now a restaurant serving build-your-own burritos or bowls, birria quesadillas, and tamales. The freshly made guacamole more than makes up for the extra salty tortilla chips. Regular churros and Oreo-flavored churros can now be found here. Grab a drink at the new outdoor Cantina Del Sur by the stage.

Sabor de Fiesta brings together food and games in festival booths located across from Silver Bullet. The best part is the summer’s tasting card, Flavors of Summer, is also included here. Expect to see potato and chorizo tacos, micheladas, and elotes.

Take a stroll down Fiesta Mercado to find a variety of unique and authentic shopping items. Inspired by Los Angeles’ Olvera Street, guests can find selections of Chamoy candies, hot sauces, blankets, cups, glassware, magnets, shirts, hoodies, hats, pins, personalized parasols, and zarapes. There’s even a specially designed tiki mug inspired by the Montezuma roller coaster that is limited to 500 made. Collectors best grab this Fiesta Village exclusive before it’s gone!

Fiesta Village is now open at Knott’s Berry Farm theme park in Buena Park, CA. We expect to see finishing touches being placed as the weeks go on. So it will be exciting to see what comes next and what changes are made as the crowds convene to this newly reimagined land. The bold colors, green landscaping, enhanced placemaking, coordinated themes, tasty cuisine, refreshing libations, and daily performances really do come together making the best version of what was there before. It brings even more excitement to see what comes next in the park’s future.
