Opening day is right around the corner, and this season, we are bringing you an entertainment lineup, unlike anything you have seen before. 2020 will feature four major events: Peanuts Celebration, Grand Carnivale, Monster Jam Thunder Alley™, and ValleySCARE. If you are looking for things to do in Minneapolis, look no farther because Valleyfair has special events going on all season long that will entertain everyone in the family.

 

Peanuts Celebration | Select Days June 13 - July 5

Step back inside the pages of a Charles Schulz comic strip as Peanuts Celebration returns for the second year in a row! Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, and all of their friends take over the park for a family-friendly experience you do not want to miss. Enjoy a multitude of live shows featuring everyone's favorite beagle, Snoopy, or meet up at Pig-Pen's Pig Pen to greet some furry friends. 

 

Grand Carnivale | Every Day July 25 - August 16

See, hear, and experience how the world kicks up its heels at Grand Carnivale, a larger-than-life cultural celebration with something for everyone. Immerse yourself in the electrifying vibe of our Spectacle of Color Parade, a bright procession that reflects joyous cultural traditions from around the globe. A fanciful fusion of extravagantly decorated floats, mesmerizing street performers, and pulsing rhythms, this parade promises to enchant and delight — especially as the day slips into night and the sky radiates with a dazzling array of lights that takes on a life of its own.

 

Monster Jam Thunder Alley™ | Every Day August 22 - September 20

We're revving up the fun with a brand-new, limited-time, interactive experience through a new partnership with Monster Jam®. Join us in August and September for Monster Jam Thunder Alley™, where you can explore adrenaline-inspired attractions and activity areas with hands-on and larger-than-life experiences.

 

ValleySCARE | Select Days September 26 - October 31

Beware! ValleySCARE is coming back again this fall with a brand new vengeance. Watch as the park takes a terrifying turn at the Midwest's largest Halloween event. With more than 75 rides, haunted mazes, scare zones, and monsters prowling the park, there is something to satisfy everyone's devilish desire. ! During the day, tiny terrors can join Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang for some not-so-scary Halloween activities for kids! Enjoy your favorite rides, live entertainment, and great fall activities at The Great Pumpkin Fest.

 

You won't miss out on any of the fun when you purchase a 2020 Gold Season Pass! Gold Season Passholders receive unlimited visits to Valleyfair all of 2020, free parking, early access to the waterpark, and much more. Kids ages 3-5 can register online for Valleyfair's FREE Pre-K Pass
