Cedar Fair parks — including some that do not yet have government approval to reopen — are holding a virtual “National Hiring Day” event on March 13 to  fill tens of thousands of seasonal positions across the country. 

In all, Cedar Fair said it anticipates filling 45,000 seasonal positions in its parks. Broken down by by park, these positions include:

  • 6,500 jobs at Cedar Point
  • 4,000 jobs at Kings Island
  • 2,100 jobs at Kings Dominion 
  • 2,000 jobs at Carowinds
  • 1,000 jobs at Valleyfair
  • 800 jobs at Michigan’s Adventure 

Notably, Knott’s Berry Farm announced it was hiring for 1,700 positions, even though the park is only open for ride-less, limited-capacity food festival events. California theme parks cannot open until their home counties hit the lowest “Yellow” tier in the state’s reopening guidelines, and Knott’s home of Orange County is still in the most-restrictive “Purple” tier. 

Other parks did not announce a specific number of job openings, including Dorney Park, Worlds of Fun, and Canada’s Wonderland. California’s Great America is listed as participating in the event, though like Knott’s, it also cannot reopen under the state’s current guidelines, despite announcing a May 22 reopening date

According to the Cedar Fair press release, the March 13 virtual hiring day “will offer information about available jobs and individual interviews with hiring teams. The park is also offering contact-free onboarding and virtual orientation to help hires prepare to start work.”

Applicants can sign up on Cedar Fair’s online jobs portal.
