Recommended Posts

The Knott’s Boysenberry Festival 2018 is here! This festival includes food and live entertainment celebrating the Boysenberry and its unique history at Knott’s. The three week long festival includes over 75 boysenberry inspired dishes, drinks, snacks, and desserts. There’s also shows, live music, a crafts fair, an art show, and so much more! We went to a preview event showcasing all the food - so check out our report to see a sampling of what you can stuff your face with at the festival! The Boysenberry Festival runs March 16 (TODAY!) through April 8. On with the report...

At check-in they had some awesome boysenberry snacks for us! Sweet!!! Spears loved the boysenberry cotton candy and popcorn - especially since they matched her lipstick!

All around the farm bright and colorful flowers are blooming!

Everyone was really excited to get to try this year’s Boysenberry-inspired food and drinks.

That’s what she said!

But yes, there is a 2 foot long Hotdog on a Boysenberry Bun! It’s honestly a great deal if you share it with friends - but the real challenge is can you eat one all by yourself?

021.thumb.JPG.a07bd505af4827dc63374e6f180ab69d.JPG

Before we dive into the drinks and desserts, lets check out “Tied Up In Knott’s” - an awesome art exhibit tribute to Knott’s Berry Farm.

022.thumb.JPG.5e319cf3a2ac2a0cd58bbc15f22f5e46.JPG

Lots of artist and fans of the farm made pieces for this exhibit, and it came out great! Prints and the original paintings are available for purchase - but they’re sure to sell out fast!

023.thumb.JPG.09ad492867bfa9cc5fedec58fab0b990.JPG

We’ll highlight a few pieces, but they’re honestly all great. This one was completely made of cut wood!

024.thumb.JPG.222752bedfc8dad869adbba9ff8f4ae4.JPG

Friend of TPR and all-around awesome Knott’s employee Jeff Tucker made this sweet Soapbox Racer model! So neat!

025.thumb.JPG.2c862ed5a06910e25f19f522e608a956.JPG

We LOVED this “Fire in the Hole” piece. It looks amazing in person! (I’m jealous of whoever gets the original of this one!)

026.thumb.JPG.5db14870bb96698187c923ea7dff82d3.JPG

I don’t want to spoil all the art - we want to leave some surprises for those going to the event - so lets keep moving along! They had a table showcasing some of the boysenberry merchandise for sale...

027.thumb.JPG.0ddd1b99293c73f77464180ca2c10a3a.JPG

Rock Candy is always a fun treat!

028.thumb.JPG.f62995a88d38ce2106c3d43c71b7202c.JPG

Bring some Boysenberry Soda home for your friends and family!

Boysenberry Caramels nom nom nom.

Take a relaxing bath at home with these Boysenberry Lavender bath bombs.

Here’s the kid’s event shirt.

032.thumb.JPG.9287b7e769f12a5ca03092dd62fc9965.JPG

The shirt even comes with a limited edition pin!

033.thumb.JPG.6c0fe32bc152bac8d827545a29bc4baa.JPG

All the boysenberry food is making me thirsty! Lets check out the drinks!

034.thumb.JPG.e5045af1d100f9c816270fae9c38866b.JPG

There’s Boysenberry Punch for the kids and Boysenberry Beer for the adults!

035.thumb.JPG.8caecd0114d29b800057c3616918f371.JPG

And Boysenberry Pie Milkshakes for everyone!

036.thumb.JPG.5ef36476bd3a20474b5b22cce2d18b4b.JPG

The Boysenberry Boba was a huge hit! And they said it’ll be available with milk, soy milk, and coconut milk for those with allergies or food restrictions! We had it with soy milk and give it an A+! It’s also probably the most Instagram-friendly Boysenberry item for those who want to show off on social media!

037.thumb.JPG.a4bc540fd336f52b8e533c81eaf96475.JPG

Ok, the moment you’ve been waiting for - the desserts! We’ll start with the Boysenberry-stuffed churro!

038.thumb.JPG.f5a31f543f89b667f944ebdb95981163.JPG

It wouldn’t be Knott’s without Boysenberry Pie!

039.thumb.JPG.20173362a225ecfc6e81c1f2fcf8b4c7.JPG

Boysenberry Funnel Cake is going to be a crowd favorite!

040.thumb.JPG.932c4363d2a38dcd5f3bc3f670fbe4d4.JPG

Boysenberry Chocolate Strawberries are great for the chocolate lovers!

041.thumb.JPG.0a35c12a33a2ae00aa2fa9276980c8d7.JPG

These Mini Boysenberry Pies are super cute...

042.thumb.JPG.71943f03ad4c8a4626d6267842b3b8ea.JPG

And the best part is you can make them yourself!

043.thumb.JPG.a87991266ccde59411436adc2e9fe7ad.JPG

Kids are going to love making and decorating the pies! Here’s one that someone at the event decorated...

044.thumb.JPG.9c54ebff075e90d8bf98f45923c2d694.JPG

And another!

045.thumb.JPG.0ecc56d090acc8fdc2f78e188d0e53bd.JPG

But if decorating isn’t your thing then give the White Chocolate Boysenberry Cheesecake a try!

046.thumb.JPG.7eabc64d398e3936e9d4a1b443c71992.JPG

The Boysenberry Cake looks delicious as well! Ugh - too many choices!

047.thumb.JPG.c414a1afd12bbf67769d0aec9bcde848.JPG

When you’re done, wash it all down with a Boysenberry Cookiewich!

I would really REALLY like to attend this next year, with David. I know he'd love it. With the trade off

(for him) being boysenberry stuff > a few rough coasters, he would definitely enjoy this.

 

But - I also want to return back to DLR when Galaxay's Edge is finally open - probably around the West Coast Bash

weekend, if they run it again in '19. If not, it's still a good time period to visit the Resort and Knott's as well.

 

What to do, what to do? (I really can't afford both trips. It's a "turning 65" $ thing, end of this month. Most likely, it'll be the Sept.trip.)

 

And THANK YOU for the awesome & delicious report! Definitely one for the foodies in this crowd, lol.

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater

 

Somebody HELP me! I read through this report and I can't get THAT SONG OUT OF MY HEAD! My brain is bursting with Boysenberry Cotton Candy (and other sundries!)

 

GREAT report and photos. Am purple with frustration that I am 3,000 miles away!

Thanks for sharing, you two...I would LOVE to visit this event one day!

 

I would be curious to know what else is mixed in with the boysenberry hummus? Was it just chick peas and boysenberry or were there other ingredients melded in?
