It’s springtime, which means that our favorite berry, the boysenberry, will soon be making its much-anticipated appearance: The Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival will run this year from March 28 through April 12.
This year, Knott’s will debut its Berry Market™ Boysenberry BBQ Sauce during the festival. Other boysenberry treats will include fried cheese curds paired with a spicy boysenberry dipping sauce; a fish and chips sandwich with boysenberry tartar sauce; Boysenberry ICEE Floats; Boysenberry Frappuccino and Latte; many charbroiled treats cooked on open-air barbeques throughout the streets of the festival; and of course Knotts’ world-famous boysenberry pie.
If you’re more interested in the berry itself, you can purchase authentic boysenberry plants at the specially re-created Walter & Cordelia Knott’s Original Roadside Boysenberry Stand.
Additionally, you’ll find boysenberry-inspired activities and displays throughout the Old West section of the park, including oversized boysenberries for photo opportunities and a daily pie-eating contest.Knott’s will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the days of the festival.
Knott’s Berry Farm is located at 8039 Beach Blvd., Buena Park, CA. The festival is free to ticketed guests; food and tasting items are available at additional cost. Tickets and more information are available at www.knotts.com.
