WHAT: On Wednesday, April 3, Knott’s Berry Farm is celebrating National Boysenberry Day to commemorate its historic roots and the little berry that started it all, the boysenberry. A boysenberry is a hybrid berry composed of blackberry, raspberry, and loganberry. In 1932 Walter and Cordelia Knott put their stamp on the berry world by being the first to harvest the boysenberry successfully. The Knott family then began selling boysenberry jams, jellies, and preserves, due to the popularity of its boysenberry products it later led to the birth of Knott’s Berry Farm. Today all the boysenberry in the world can trace its roots back to Knott’s Berry Farm. To show love to the berry that placed Knott’s on the map the park is inviting guests to dress their Berry Best by sporting formal boysenberry themed outfits for National Boysenberry Day. During the event, guests are encouraged to dress as stylish as needed by wearing bowties, gloves, suits or skirts. Knott’s provides the best back-drops for all the stylish outfits which guests can share online with friends by using #NationalBoysenberryDay
Guests entering the park will receive a commemorative National Boysenberry Day pin to mark the special occasion and at 4 pm in Calico Mine Stage guests dressed in their berry best will have the option to participate in the first-ever National Boysenberry Day Fashion Show where the town’s Judge will select a participating guest with the most festive and creative outfit as the fashion show’s winner. The winner will receive a boysenberry prize and the reputation of being known as the berry best dressed. Most importantly on National Boysenberry Day guests will also have the opportunity to indulge in over 75 unique boysenberry food items that are exclusively available during the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival which is available from March 29 – April 28th.
