Walter Knott changed the history of the city of Buena Park when he mixed together a loganberry, blueberry, and raspberry to create the boysenberry flavor. It’s been a staple of Knott’s Berry Farm ever since. Each year, the park honors his invention with the annual Boysenberry Festival.

The main event at the Boysenberry Festival are all the unique foods that you can try. You’ll find them at the festival booths and restaurants throughout the park. The chefs at Knott’s make it their job to test the limits of flavor. From traditionally savory items to sweets, or even cocktails and beers, the boysenberry works well with flavors across the board. Some new food offerings are cauliflower bites, sushi burritos, sweet corn nuggets, bread pudding, waffles, and more.
