The Knott’s Boysenberry Festival has officially opened at Knott’s Berry Farm. This annual food-inspired event celebrates the park’s historic roots by turning the spotlight onto the berry that started it all, the boysenberry.
This year’s festival features over 75 new and returning boysenberry-inspired offerings created by Knott’s culinary team. In addition to those tasty treats, the festival also offers a variety of daily entertainment, live music and activities for guests to enjoy.
New food items for the 2018 Knott’s Boysenberry Festival include:
- Boysenberry pierogies with sautéed onions, applewood bacon and boysenberry whipped cream
- The all-new boysenberry boba tea, made of boysenberry milk tea and chewy, berry-soaked tapioca balls served over ice
- The Boysenberry Quesadilla made with a boysenberry-infused flour tortilla, served with boysenberry salsa, boysenberry sour cream with cotija and mozzarella cheese
- Slow-cooked boysenberry short ribs, with the meat smothered in boysenberry hoisin sauce served over better basmati rice with chopped green onions
- The Boysenberry Elote – lightly grilled corn smothered in fresh boysenberry butter, mayo and topped off with cotija cheese
- Sharable snacks like the new vegetarian and vegan option, boysenberry hummus with pita bread and prepared with garden-fresh boysenberries
- A grilled boysenberry sausage on a baked roll, with boysenberry ketchup, mustard and relish
- Bite-sized boysenberry coconut macaroons, dipped in chocolate ganache
Guests have the option to purchase tasting cards to let them sample a variety of foods during the festival. Each tasting card is $30, and offers tastings of up to eight select food items. Tasting cards are available online or in the park during the festival.
