Knott’s Berry Farm Welcomes Spring with a new Food and Retail Experience,
the Taste of Boysenberry Festival Celebrates all Things Boysenberry Beginning March 5th
A new food and retail experience is blooming at Knott’s Berry Farm as it celebrates the little berry that put the park on the map, with Knott’s Taste of Boysenberry Festival. Guests can catch a taste of the popular springtime Boysenberry Festival, as it offers all-new boysenberry-inspired savory foods, sweet treats and refreshing drinks that can’t be found anywhere else. While the theme park remains closed, the food and merchandise-focused outdoor event offers over 80 boysenberry-infused food and drink items which are included on the event tasting card. Guests can choose from a lineup of tantalizing delicacies such as beer cheese soup with a boysenberry drizzle and brown butter croutons, beef tips served with creamy boysenberry mashed potatoes, and boysenberry BBQ carne asada pizza garnished with cilantro and onions, plus options for all dietary preferences. Thirst-quenching drinks include boysenberry lemonade with basil, boysenberry ICEE float with vanilla soft serve, boysenberry mint and pineapple aqua fresca and so much more. Guests can also shop from a wide variety of boysenberry-inspired merchandise including event apparel, kitchenware and pre-packaged take-home sweets. In addition, they will find handmade and personalized gifts from over 20 artisan local crafters offering unique boysenberry items.

Last week we were invited out to check out the Taste of Merry Farm at Knott's Berry Farm. This was actually our first visit to the park since leap day as we hadn't been able to make it to any of the other "Taste" events.
It was great being back out at the park, trying some food and just walking around one of our favorite places.
I will admit, it felt kind of weird, but overall the park has done a great job of making the best out of a bad situation. Let's head in!

Hi Knott's!! We've missed you!!
You can also check out our video walk-through of the event
It was a beautiful day
First treat of the day were the fried green beans and tater-tot thing. The green beans were actually not very warm which was weird as the park had just opened. But the Tots were great!!
Next up was the Cranberry Chocolate Tart and a Boysenberry Smoothie. The Tart was way too sweet for me, but the Smoothie was fantastic. I hope it stays on the menu somewhere.
Love the new look of the Schulz Theater
Lots of new stuff to look at over here
Lots of holiday goodies in the gallery & gifts shop
Nice touch with the Hangtime car
For the coaster nerds out there
This looks fantastic!!
If there was a Rose Parade in 2021 I could see this driving the parade route
Let's head over to the Boardwalk
Mashed Potatoes. Good. Cranberry Sauce. Good. Stuffing. Good. Chicken Strips. Good. Jack and Coke Frosty. Gooooood!!
Calico Square looked fantastic of course
BBQ Pork Mac and Cheese and a Boysenberry Beer
Last up is Camp Snoopy
A couple of selfies
Love the decorations over here
Especially the Penguins!!
If you are so inclined, Mask Up and head to Knott's for the Taste of Merry Farm.

Happy Wednesday Afternoon Everybody!! We don't usually like to do two updates in the same day, but we've got something SUPER SPECIAL for tomorrow morning, that you're definitely not going to want to miss.
On my way home from Disneyland last Saturday I had to stop and get the Chicken Pin. Because, well, look at it (below). So of course I headed into the park to do a lap.

Work Continues on the all new Bear'y Tales
The walls extend pretty far out
Told ya it was going to be a quick update!! We'll be at Knott's for the opening of the Boysenberry Festival!
This weekend we were invited out to the third year of the Knott's Peanuts Celebration. It was a great time at the park, our first visit since Merry Farm, so we were looking forward to not only trying out some tasty treats, seeing some fun shows, but also spending time at one of our favorite theme parks.
Let's head in for some fun!!

Welcome to Knott's, as you can see it was a beautiful day.
Knott's Beary Farm is opening a Build a Bear Workshop soon.
We love that they have these great events all year, and they all seem to get longer each year, which is great.
Sorry Chuck, Lucy made me do it.
We also put together a highlight video of the event, be sure to check it out.
Welcome to Ghost Town
There were Kite-Eating Trees EVERYWHERE!
Lots of yummy treats all around the park. No tasting cards like they have for the Boysenberry Festival, but I'm sure those are coming one of these years.
Pig-Pen's Pig Pen is back!!
Say hi to Ted everybody!!
Piggies!! (much more of them in our highlight video above)
Our first stop was the Sketch School in the Bird Cage Theatre. It's super fun.
We learned how to draw Charlie Brown!
Well, kind of. =)
We'll stop eating now in preparation. =)
Not much going on outside of the new Bear'y Tales, even the Iron Reef signs are still there.
Lots of great Peanuts Celebration merchandise!!
Not a cloud in the sky
We didn't partake in the $15 shake this time. Remember when John Travolta was questioning a $5 shake? =)
Woodstock's Bird's Eye View is back!!
We did a live stream of it on our FB page
The Timber Mountain Log Ride is closed for it's annual refurbishment
Later in the day it appeared they were doing some work on the bottom of the final drop.
We were invited in to a Media Day reception where we got to see all of the food available at the event.
And a bit more merchandise.
Slideshow of all the yummy food.
We didn't get to try all of this, mostly the desserts, but what we had was quite tasty.
Spike is here!!
The all new show Happiness is... was very popular.
It was full of energy and kids seemed to love it. We realize we aren't the target audience for these kinds of shows though. But if you are, you'll love it.
Over in Camp Snoopy, lots of fun photo ops.
And of course the return of Beagle Bonanza
Our POV of Beagle Bonanza from last years event.
All new for this year.
Outside the park, we saw this in the California Marketplace. But we didn't see them for sale anywhere. Anybody know where they are? Definitely would like a nice Knott's throw.
For those who still need their Knott's Scary Farm sign, the Department 56 store has them in stock!!
Sadly, the time came for us to say goodbye to Knott's.
But we had an amazing time!!
We had an amazing time at the Peanuts Celebration. Check out all of the information about this years event here.
