Knott’s Berry Farm is adding three additional weekends onto its Boysenberry Festival.
The annual tradition at the Buena Park, California theme park was originally set to wrap up on April 16. The park announced Thursday that the festival will be extended to April 21-23, 28-30, and 5-7.
During the festival, Knott’s offers special food and drink items throughout the park, paying tribute to the boysenberry popularized by Walter Knott. The event also features special live entertainment, such as the new “Knott’s Preserved: A Musical Celebration” at the Calico Mine Stage, and a craft fair in the Ghost Town section of the parks featuring 30 local vendors.
The extended Boysenberry Festival will leave just one weekend separating it from Knott’s next seasonal events, Ghost Town Alive and Knott’s Summer Nights, which kick off on May 20.
Beyond festivals, several changes are coming to Knott’s later this year. The park is scheduled to debut a redone Fiesta Village, including an overhauled and renamed MonteZOOMa: The Forbidden Fortress coaster, complete with a new randomized launch sequence. The Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel will also complete a “major renovation.”
Exact opening dates have not been announced for these projects, but all are supposed to be completed sometime in 2023.
