All You Need To Know For The 2019 Knott's Boysenberry Festival

This spring, go on a food adventure at Knott's Berry Farm with your boo, your family, whoevaaa. Honestly won't judge you if you go alone. This 2019, the Boysenberry Festival is running from March 29 to April 28! Go go go!

Every year, indeed, I do look forward to the Knott's Boysenberry Festival! They always have such great boysenberry infused food and I just love the theme park atmosphere! It's fun getting to taste a bunch of unique food creations and enjoy rides, and performances. This year, I got invited to the Knott's Boysenberry Festival Media Preview and am excited to tell you about their new items!

Damn...y'all think Kevin could finish this though?

So many boysenberry themed desserts like pies, cookies, tarts and more!


OMG are you drooling yet? Just look at the selection!


The elote has improved so much this year! The previous years it was good during media event, but terribly executed during the actual festival. However, this year's elote looks very promising because they add some boysenberry butter all over it! It's definitely one of my faves!


Which one of these are you excited to try!?


This is the Boysenberry Pot Roast over Boysenberry Mashed Potatoes and I enjoyed them! The mashed potatoes were garlic-y too!

Boysenberry Glazed Salmon over mixed Greens and topped with a Boysenberry Vinaigrette
I didn't get to try this one but it does look good! 


More dessert!

Who is down for boba? This debuted at the first time ever during the 2018 event! Knott's Berry Farm's first...boba drink!? The drink is basically a boysenberry latte and actually quite good! I really like it! Last year, during the actual festival, they messed up on the boba and left it out too long so it was hard =[ ... hopefully it won't be the same this year! But overall, the drink is yumz!!

SO MANY NEW ITEMS!
Kevin and I had so much fun at the Knott's Berry Farm media sneak preview this time around. It was definitely a treat to reunite with other food bloggers, but most importantly of all, taste test the boysenberry goods! YUMMM!


Let's get straight to it: Yes! The event is worth it!
A tasting card will cost ya $35 and get ya 8 different tastes (14 items to choose from). Last year, it was just 8 tastes in general, so if there is something you enjoy, you can get it multiple times...maybe even 8 times...LOL. Each person gets a tasting card and the servers will hole punch the card once you've used a particular tasting!

Oh, if you're into wine and craft beer, that has a tasting card too! It costs $30 and usually comes with a cheese and crackers platter!
