Valleyfair will debut a multi-weekend event, Peanuts Celebration, for the 2019 season.

The event will take place on weekends June 8 through June 30. Valleyfair will spend each weekend celebrating Charles M. Schulz’s creation with enthusiasm only found in Minnesota.

“This event draws on the roots the Schulz family built in Minnesota,” Valleyfair General Manager Raul Rehnborg said, “We are sure that guests will find the fun, joy, and humor in this event that Charles Schulz portrayed in each of his comics.”

The event will feature special Peanuts inspired décor, new comic strip photo ops, character experiences, live shows, exclusive merchandise and themed treats to complete the whimsical celebration.

The Peanuts inspired festivities continue at Peanuts Sketch School, where guests can learn how to draw their favorite Peanuts character. The Peanuts Sketch School will include Valleyfair’s resident cartoonist who will provide step by step instructions on how to draw the perfect Peanuts masterpiece.

On Saturday, June 15, Valleyfair is celebrating Good Ol’ Charlie Brown by hosting Charlie Brown Day. The park plans to host the largest gathering of Charlie Browns in one picture. If your name is Charlie Brown you can receive free admission to the park on June 15-16. Show a valid ID at the admissions building to receive the complimentary ticket.
