The 23-day food festival features over 70 one-of-a-kind boysenberry inspired dishes, drinks and more, plus foot-stompin’ entertainment, Wine and Craft Brew Tasting Garden, featuring boysenberry and wine, and family fun that everyone will love!

Mike went to sample some of the offerings this year for the Boysenberry Festival, yesterday. For 2017, the mouthwatering line-up of boysenberry inspired dishes will feature irresistible boysenberry pizza made with arugula and goat cheese (yum), the unforgettable and delicious new ravioli dish packed with boysenberry flavors (yum), freshly-baked boysenberry fry bread (yum yum) and lip-smacking corn on the cob with boysenberry butter and mayo (didn’t try it).

Other must try items include crispy deep fried alligator bites paired with farm-made zesty boysenberry aioli (you can try it), finger-lickin boysenberry BBQ wings (yum), savory boysenberry meatballs (yum yum), sweet boysenberry cream soda (yas!), creamy chocolate covered boysenberry cheesecake on a stick (yum yum) and many more delicious treats. Additional fee for tastings.

The Boysenberry Festival is included with admission to Knott’s Berry Farm, additional cost for food tasting experiences within the event.  Knott’s will have extended hours, 10am to 10pm, from April 1 –  April 23, allowing guests extra time to take advantage of all of the limited-time offerings.

The 16-day food festival features countless, one-of-a-kind boysenberry inspired dishes, drinks and more, plus live entertainment, the Wine and Craft Brew Tasting Garden, and fun the whole family will love! From sun up to sun down, the festival features dueling fiddlers, Peanuts Party in the Park, vine dancing, Jammin’ in the Dark (a nighttime dance party), live music, and other live entertainment. The best part is that admission to the Boysenberry is included with admission.

If you’ve been thinking about visiting, especially during Spring Break, you should! I’m still dreaming of all the delicious things I ate. To make sure you get a taste of everything, take advantage of the tasting card. For $25 you can really get a taste of the festival. It’s a great deal and you really are able to experience all that the Boysenberry Festival has to offer.

We had the opportunity to try Boysenberry ribs, meatballs, wings, alligator bites, and of course, dessert! It’s the perfect way to celebrate Spring Break. You want to make sure to get out to the farm and check it out for yourself. If you are looking for something to do with the family during break, this is it!
