Oh Boysenberry, Knott's Just Revealed the 2019 Fest Foods

New dishes like boysenberry jambalaya, plus classics like boysenberry funnel cake, are on the tasty to-do's line-up.

What to Know

  • Knott's Berry Farm's Boysenberry Festival
  • Buena Park
  • March 29-April 28, 2019

We want the future to come faster, but only if absolutely everything we eat has some sort of boysenberry-based topping.

Surely this utopian vision couldn't be too difficult to achieve?

And why couldn't the sweetly tart titan of the fruit aisle appear next to every single savory and dessert-like bite we take? After all, everything's better with boysen.

Knott's Berry Farm, the Buena Park theme park that has long been synonymous with the berry, understands our dream for this particularly fruitful future. And Knott's kindly grants us one month, each year, when all sorts of suppable edibles are doused, drizzled, and fully dipped in boysenberry goodness.

It's the Boysenberry Festival, and it will once again elevate a host of foodstuffs to a new and tangier level of boysenberryian bliss. And we do mean "a host": Over 75 boysenberry-ish foods will be served, oh boy(senberry).

The 2019 dates are March 29 through April 28, but the historic coaster-packed destination has given fans a sneak peak at what they'll be dining on gooey go-around.

What's new this year?

So, so much, including boysenberry jerk chicken wings, boysenberry pot roast served with boysenberry mashed potatoes, boysenberry habañero mac 'n cheese, boysenberry elote (with boysenberry butter, mmm), and boysenberry waffles.

Just. To. Name. A. Few. (Dramatic periods are always required when discussing the boysenberry.)

Returning favorites? The ever-obsessed-over boysenberry funnel cake will be back, along with the Fun Bun.

That's right: Fun. Bun. (More dramatic periods required here, because Fun Buns demand them.)

So how can you totally submerge yourself in this glorious sticky-thon of dine-around deliciousness? Your admission to Knott's Berry Farm, from March 29 through April 28, gets you to the boysenberry-serving spots.

But, of course, you'll want the bucks to buy all of the boysenberry-laden lusciousness you want to consume.

Do you need more, more, more? Of course. There's always a need for more when it comes to La Vida Boysenberry.

Check out the info at the Knott's site now, and stayed tuned for more boysenberry-exciting headlines from the theme park.
