Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival Food Guide 2017

My favorite event of the year at Knott’s Berry Farm is their annual Boysenberry Festival. This year, we had the opportunity to check out some of the food offerings at their media tasting. It was a reminder that it has come a long way since it was known as Knott’s Berry Bloom (remember back when the Boardwalk was under construction?). Anyway, we are super excited about the Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival because it features our favorite berry in every shape and form. We put together this Boysenberry Festival Food Guide that will help you navigate the park as you jump from eatery to eatery.

p.s. If you want to visit more than once, I highly recommend picking up the Knott’s Berry Farm season pass.

Boysenberry Festival Food Guide

There are a few different ways to enjoy Knott’s Berry Farm’s Boysenberry Festival. You can purchase pre-organized tastings choosing either (or both!) tasting cards – the Boysenberry Festival Tasting Cards and/or the Wine and Craft Beer Brew Garden Tasting Card. Each is $25 plus tax, and if you’re feeling frugal I would suggest you purchase one of each and share the tastings with someone.

Boysenberry Festival Tasting Cards

You’ll purchase the card and go throughout Ghost Town picking up the different plates of food. The tasting card includes generous portions of these six treats:

  • Boysenberry Pizza at Wagon Wheel Pizza
  • Boysenberry Ravioli at Spurs Chophouse
  • Boysenberry Buffalo Wings at the Gold Trails Hotel
  • Boysenberry BBQ Meatballs at the Bank of Calico
  • Boysenberry Fry Bread at the Gourmet Churro Factory
  • Boysenberry Panna Cotta at the Ghost Town Bakery

Price: $25 plus tax
Where to buy: Purchase online or at the following locations at the park: The California Store, Little Spurs, General Store, Ghost Town Candy, Gold Trails Hotel, Spurs Chophouse, Pemmican Pickle, Calico Saloon, Ghost Town Bakery, Sutter’s Grill, and Ghost Town Mix-it-up. If you purchase online, you’ll redeem the e-voucher at one of the locations where you can purchase a tasting card.

Boysenberry Festival Wine and Craft Brew Garden Tasting Cards

The Wine and Craft Brew Garden is located inside of Ghost Town’s Wilderness Dance Hall. It’s my happy place, and I love that I can bring the chiclets in there too because they have non-alcoholic treats for them too! The Wine and Craft Brew Garden will offer four craft brews (try the boysenberry cider) and over 50 different wines from 36 producers including boysenberry beer and boysenberry wine. Stop by the dance hall during the day to cool off, and return in the evening because it’s super pretty when the lights come on. Don’t miss the Snoopy-shaped topiary outside the dance hall. It’s fun and cute and will make for a great Instagram pic.

The tasting card includes six tastings paired with snacks.

Price: $25 plus tax
Where to buy: Purchase at Ghost Town’s Wilderness Dance Hall
