The Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival is the annual food-inspired event that celebrates the little berry that started it all, the boysenberry. This year’s festival will feature over 75 new and returning boysenberry inspired creations crafted by the Knott’s culinary team. Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in a variety of dishes ranging from savory foods with a boysenberry twist to refreshingly sweet and tangy drinks and one-of-a-kind specialty desserts that can only be found at Knott’s Berry Farm during this time of the year. In addition to the tasty treats, the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival offers a wide selection of daily entertainment, live music and fun activities for guests of all ages to enjoy. This year’s festival has expanded to 24 days, starting March 16 and running daily through April 8.
This year’s appetizing lineup includes the first ever boysenberry quesadilla made with a boysenberry-infused flour tortilla, served with boysenberry salsa, boysenberry sour cream with cotija and mozzarella cheese. Our new boysenberry pierogies with onions, bacon and boysenberry sour cream are bursting with a combination of sweet and savory flavors. Other flavorful items that will be prepared and served for our guests to enjoy include the slow cooked boysenberry short ribs. The juicy meat is smothered in boysenberry hoisin sauce served over butter basmati rice and completed with chopped green onions. The guest favorite and finger-lickin’ boysenberry chicken wings will return. The irresistible wings are smothered in the delicious and popular boysenberry BBQ sauce which is made exclusively at the Farm. The boysenberry inspired items also include the very filling a grilled boysenberry sausage on a freshly baked roll topped with boysenberry ketchup, relish and mustard.
For guests craving a refreshing drink, Knott’s is offering an all-new boysenberry boba tea which consists of boysenberry milk tea and chewy berry-soaked tapioca balls served over ice. The boysenberry elote is one of the satisfying treats guests will be able to find in the streets of Ghost Town. The lightly grilled corn is smothered in fresh boysenberry butter, mayo and perfectly topped off with cotija cheese. The festival also offers a variety of sharable snacks for the family including a new vegetarian/vegan option, boysenberry hummus served with pita bread and prepared with garden-fresh boysenberries. Sweets and desserts are a key part of the festival and this year the culinary team is introducing the scrumptious, perfectly bite-sized boysenberry coconut macaroons, dipped in a decadent chocolate ganache, which are great to enjoy while strolling through the park. A great option to indulge in a variety of food items during the festival is by purchasing a tasting card priced at $30 which offers tastings of eight select food items. Guests can enjoy all eight items on the card or mix-and-match up to eight tastings. Returning and other signature boysenberry items will be available for purchase a la carte. Tasting cards are available at www.Knotts.com or in the theme park.
