Spring is in the air all around us, especially at Knotts’s Berry Farm’s Boysenberry Festival! With a fun food fest going on too, you will definitely NOT want to miss out on this wonderful event that kicks off the Spring season. Also, in honor of the Knotts’s Berry Farm’s Boysenberry Festival, I will be giving away 2 tickets to one of my lucky readers to this wonderful event! Woo Hoo! Now how cool is that? Giveaway tickets can only be used through the Boysenberry Festival season, March 28-April 12,2015. Now read on about this awesome festival and on how to have a chance at winning these awesome tickets to the park!
Now here’s a fun fact, in the 1930s Walter Knott harvested the boysenberry, a cross between a loganberry, red raspberry and blackberry, and named the new berry after its originator Rudolph Boysen. Today, all boysenberries in the world can trace their roots back to Knott’s Berry Farm. Pretty cool, huh?!
BBQ lovers you are going to LOVE this! This year Knott’s is debuting their very own farm-made Berry Market™ Boysenberry BBQ Sauce. During the food fest, the yummy, tangy, finger lickin’ sauce will add the perfect flavor to ribs, BBQ chicken, chicken wings, and more! OMG! I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!
While you’re there you must also try Boysenberry Bites, which include fried cheese curds paired with a spicy boysenberry dipping sauce, fish and chips sandwich with boysenberry tartar sauce, Boysenberry ICEE Floats, Boysenberry Frappuccino and Latte (served at the new Gourmet Coffee Hut which proudly serves Starbucks drinks), and more charbroiled treats cooked on open-air barbeques throughout the streets of the festival.
It wouldn’t be an experience at Knott’s without their awesome live entertainment! ‘Peanuts Party in the Park’ celebrates spring in a big way with infectious music, vibrant new set design, and an invitation for the audience to be a part of the show! The iconic Charleston Circle fountain transforms into a beautiful floral fountain, adorned with colorful flowers and boysenberries creating an iconic centerpiece for the celebration. Located in the Boardwalk area, the stunning monument will serve as a dramatic backdrop for the Peanuts Gang to show off their dances moves in this highly interactive show that the entire family will enjoy.
‘Jammin’ in the Dark’ transforms Charleston Circle into a fun dance party complete with illuminated boysenberries, vines and LED lighting effects affixed to the Charleston fountain; DJ HowLy will spin the hottest dance music for all ages.
In Camp Snoopy Theatre, the kiddos are not going to want to miss Lucy’s Really BIG Spring Show! It showcases the Peanuts pals singing, dancing, and celebrating springtime. The theater will be filled with the sweet sounds of little ones as they sing-along to the show’s cheerful tunes!
For those of you out there who love to dance to the beats of Latin music, then you will not want to miss the Salsa Dancing in Fiesta Village! Guests don’t have to be experts to enjoy this great time on the dance floor!
Knott’s has something for everyone! The world famous bluegrass country music group, Krazy Kirk and the Hillbillies (formerly known as Billy Hill and the Hillbillies), will perform sets of their toe tappin’, hand clappin’ and gut bustin’ musical comedy show in the Bird Cage Theatre located in Ghost Town. Performances run on select dates.
Wine and Craft Brew Garden*
Now for the grown-ups out there as part of the festival, the Wine and Craft Brew Garden, located inside of Ghost Town’s Wilderness Dance Hall, features an assortment of wine and craft brew labels, in addition to a variety of boysenberry inspired gourmet food that’s just bursting with flavor. Just outside of the Dance Hall, towering sculpted topiaries provide shade during warm spring days and twinkle brighter than stars at night.
Interactive Pie Making*
Back to the kiddos, they can join the classic Bear-y Tales characters in their very own pie making kitchen inside of Ghost Town’s Toy Barn. With the help of Razz Bear-y, Boysen Bear-y and the other Bear-y family members, each beautifully painted scene will follow the world famous boysenberry from field to blue ribbon winning pie! The pint sized chefs can also make their very own delightfully sweet boysenberry tarts complete with a crumble topping. Additional cost applies for pie making.
*Additional cost applies for these experiences. Convenient tasting cards are available.
