CHARACTER MEET AND GREETS

You never know who from the PEANUTS crew you’ll run into throughout the park plus find Pig-Pen back again this year with a special meetup at the Livery Stables with some of his favorite animal friends. And if that’s not enough, this year, we spotted Snoopy’s brother Spike!

ATTRACTION OVERLAYS

ENTERTAINMENT

HAPPINESS IS…

At the Calico Mine Stage this year is a brand new musical surprise with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Peppermint Patty and Linus. Together with their friends, they invite you to play, dance, sing, and laugh through a medley of popular songs about fun, laughter and the true bonds of friendship. While not as strong as other shows we’ve seen on this stage, it’s a great opportunity to see some adorable characters.

Woodstock’s Musical Festival

At Calico Park, at nightfall, the stage will transform into a musical extravaganza featuring indie band The Jelly of the Month Club. Appearances by Peanuts characters and Woodstock himself make this an upbeat offering for the whole family. Here’s video from the inaugural year of the show.
