Knott's Berry Farm is preparing for its annual Boysenberry Festival, which will run from March 28 through April 12 at the Buena Park, California theme park.
As much as fans might associate Charlie Brown and roller coasters with Knott's, it is the boysenberry that is Knott's most enduring symbol. A cross between a loganberry, red raspberry, and blackberry, the boysenberry's roots run to Knott's Berry Farm, where park founder Walter Knott harvested Rudolph Boysen's creation. (And thus, the name of the park — it really once was Knott's berry farm.)
Knott's Boysenberry Festival celebrates all the different ways that one can consume a boysenberry, including:
Festival entertainment will include boysenberry-pie-eating contests, Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies, fiddlers, banjo players, the Peanuts Party in the Park, and a nighttime dance party. The festival is included in park admission, though the eats are an extra charge, as usual.Tweet
