We’re Celebrating Our 84th at Knott’s!

Let’s have a blast together at Knott’s Berry Farm on Saturday, June 29, 2024!

It’s our Annual Meeting – a time dedicated to celebrating our collective achievements! Join us for a day of fun as we mark our 84th anniversary! None of this would be possible without your ongoing support.

In a world full of banking options, your dedication to our Credit Union continues to make us stronger. Since 1939, we’ve been on a mission to help our members thrive. Our recipe for success hasn’t changed from the past to the present, and we’re carrying it into the future. We are a true financial cooperative. We are in it for you, and not for profit.

It’s only $45 per person to join in the fun

This is a great deal, and the credit union is covering the bulk of the cost. Imagine this: while the general admission price for this day is a whopping $74.99 and doesn’t even include food, your ticket gets you access to the Amusement Park and the Gold Rush Camp picnic area.

We will be hosting our Annual Meeting at the picnic area, where you’ll meet our dedicated volunteers (Board and Supervisory Committee Members) and staff from 11:00 am to 11:30 am. It’ll be short and sweet because right after, the real fun begins!

Picture this: a mouthwatering buffet lunch awaits, featuring none other than the legendary fried chicken cooked up with Mrs. Knott’s secret recipe! But that’s not all – we’ve got a whole lineup of games and activities planned just for you. Plus, we’re giving away a ton of prizes that’ll have you jumping with joy!

Get Your Tickets Now. We Expect to Sell Out.

We do expect that we will sell out of tickets. So that more members can take advantage of this offer, each member can grab up to six (6) tickets. All tickets are sold on a first-come-first-serve basis.
