Knott’s Boysenberry Festival


Knott’s is known for big rides and pee your pants scares, but remember, it all started with a berry. To remind that Knott’s Berry Farm is more than just thrills, they’ve sprung into action to bring you a festival celebrating their first claim to fame, the Boysenberry.

How much can you do with a berry? Well actually, a heck of a lot. This festival is here to prove it to you. From wine and beer tasting to exotic treats like fried alligator with boysenberry aioli, Knott’s takes your taste buds for a thrill ride this time. Not feeling that adventurous? No problem. There’s plenty to choose from including classic spins on cotton candy, ice cream, pie and more.

Now through April 12 at the park’s Ghost Town, the park will also celebrate with extended hours (10 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and nighttime activities including live music and dancing.

While you can experience the festival free with park admission, you may purchase some additional deals to fully immerse yourself in the boysenberry experience.

For the foodies, you need to get the Six tastings of Boysenberry treats for $25 plus tax. It includes a tasting map as you hunt down berrytastic morsels. For those over 21, you’ll want to buy the Boysenberry wine and craft beer tasting. It includes 6 beers or wine tastings of your choice, as well as some nibbles that will complement the tasting. Be sure to try the boysenberry beer, it’s light and refreshing, and perfect for your day at the farm. I hope they start selling it in stores soon.

With only a week left to check out the festival, you’ll want to head out soon. As always Knott’s is bringing a unique kind of family fun with unique and classic tastes, and the Boysenberry festival is something you’ll be sad you missed.
