With Orange County, California no longer under a stay-at-home order and outdoor dining once again allowed, Knott’s Berry Farm is holding another hard-ticket food festival event.
Taste of Boysenberry Festival will offer 80 food and drink items — boysenberry-infused, of course.
“Guests can choose from a lineup of tantalizing delicacies such as beer cheese soup with a boysenberry drizzle and brown butter croutons, beef tips served with creamy boysenberry mashed potatoes, and boysenberry BBQ carne asada pizza garnished with cilantro and onions, plus options for all dietary preferences,” Knott’s said in a press release. “Thirst-quenching drinks include boysenberry lemonade with basil, boysenberry ICEE float with vanilla soft serve, boysenberry mint and pineapple aqua fresca and so much more.”
Like other Knott’s festivals run during the age of COVID-19, shops inside the park will also be open during the event, but no attractions will be operating. All the same COVID-19 safeguards will still apply: physical distancing, temperature checks, and frequent sanitation, and face masks will still be required for guests except when sitting at a table or bench to eat or drink.
The limited-capacity event will require guests to purchase “tasting cards” in advance. Prices have increased again, with adult cards with five “tastings” now costing $45 plus tax. Tasting cards for kids aged 3-11 will cost $20. Tickets are now on sale for Knott’s passholders and will open to the general public on Feb. 16.
The event itself will run on the following dates: March 5-7, 12-14, 19-21, and then March 26 through April 11, April 16-18, 23-25, 30, then wrapping up with its final two dates on May 1 and 2.
Knott’s ran a series of food festivals throughout the late summer and fall of 2020, having shuttered in mid-March along with other California theme parks. That came to a halt when Taste of Merry Farm had to be canceled amid a surge of COVID-19 hospitalizations that saw new restrictions imposed across the state.
