All Things Boysenberry
Spring is here and that means it’s not only time for sunshine but also time for The Knott’s Boysenberry Festival. Did you know that every boysenberry in the world can be traced back to Walter Knott and his Boysenberry Festival? The Bosysenberry is a cross between red raspberry, blackberry and the loganberry.
Annual Boysenberry celebration
The annual Boysenberry festival is a fun filled, food inspired festival highlighting the unforgettable flavor of the Boysenberry. Knott’s celebrates the flavorful berry and its historic roots during the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival with unique food and live entertainment. The three-week food festival, March 16 – April 8, features over 75 one-of-a-kind boysenberry inspired dishes, drinks and more, plus foot-stompin’ entertainment, the Wine and Craft Brew Tasting Garden, and family fun everyone will love! We have to mention Flores Honey. They are new this year to Knott’s Boysenberry Festival and are definitely worth a visit. You can’t miss them, they have a LIVE beehive on display.
