Calling nibblers, munchers, grazers, and foodies of all ages! Knott’s Berry Farm, home of the delicious boysenberry, has just announced recently the return of its annual Taste of Boysenberry Festival this spring. Though theme park rides are still closed due to covid, we’re sure that your tastebuds will still get a kick (get quite the thrill) out of the more than 65 different boysenberry-infused dishes and drinks for you to sample.

Though a full list of all the festival’s food offerings hasn’t been released yet, a few dishes you can expect to see at the festival as featured on their website include boysenberry BBQ glazed wings, boysenberry balsamic brussels sprouts, a fun bun with boysenberry glaze, and pork buns with boysenberry kimchi and nam pla. 

In addition to all of the boysenberry-tastic food and drink options, guests can also shop from a variety of boysenberry inspired merchandise ranging from kitchenware to handmade and personalized gifts from over 20 artisan local crafters

In order to make the festival as safe as possible for everyone, a smaller number of tickets will be available for purchase in order to allow for proper social distancing. Guests will also be required to wear face coverings at all times, complete a temperature check upon arrival, and are recommended to use contactless payment whenever possible.

The festival will be held on select dates beginning March 5th – May 2nd and event hours will be 12 pm to 9 pm on select weekdays and Saturdays, and from 12 pm to 8 pm on Sundays.

Currently, regular tasting cards are priced at $45 plus tax for those aged 12+ (includes five food tastings) and Junior tasting cards are $20 plus tax for those between the ages of 3-11 (include three tastings). Please be sure to note that tasting cards are date specific and must be purchased online at knotts.com or through the Knott’s Berry Farm mobile app prior to the date of visit.
