It's Springtime and everything is blooming at Knott's Berry Farm's special event, Knott's Berry Bloom. Be sure to visit Knott's Berry Bloom for a sweet time! The Boysenberry Festival is included with admission.

Throughout the park there are photos & posters explaining how Walter Knott made the boysenberry famous in 1934. He named the large, sweet-tart berries--a cross between the red raspberry, blackberry and loganberry--after his friend, Rudolph Boysen, who propagated them. It was the most popular berry at Knott's Berry Farm. Their boysenberry pies, turnovers and drinks became world famous.

  • The 23-day and entertainment festival returns with an unforgettable lineup of exquisite Boysenberry Bites, dazzling entertainment, the Wine and Craft Brew Tasting Garden, and more farm fresh fun the whole family will love!
  • Sun up to sun down festival includes dueling fiddlers, Jammin' in the Dark
  • Peanuts Party in the Park
