Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival Food Guide

If you’re a big fan of all things Boysenberry (the legendary fruit that’s a cross between a loganberry, raspberry, and blackberry), you’ll want to join the celebration at Knott’s Berry Farm’s Boysenberry Festival!

Fun Fact!

Here’s a little cool history of Knott’s Berry Farm that you may or may not already know. Walter and Cordelia Knott moved to Buena Park California in 1920 to farm 20 acres of rented land which included harvesting and selling the first boysenberry named after its originator, Rudolph Boysen. A recreated original roadside boysenberry stand where the Knott family sold freshly picked boysenberries can be found on the streets of Ghost Town. Watch the video below to learn more!
