For the anniversary, Knott's has created a special 100 year Annual Pass card. I was able to exchange my old Platinum AP for the new one for free. Makes for a great memento!

The Knott's Boysenberry Festival is back for 2020 to celebrate the park's historic roots with their annual food-inspired event that highlights the little berry that started it all! Running from March 20 through April 19, the festival will feature more than 75 new and returning boysenberry-inspirited creations. In addition to the food and drink items, the festival will also feature a variety of entertainment and activities for all to enjoy.

The Tasting Card will work a bit more guest-friendly this year with the ability to choose 8 of the 26 following options:
1. Boysenberry Mimosa (New)
2. Boysenberry Basil Lemonade (New)
3. Boysenberry Beer Cheese Soup topped with a Boysenberry Drizzle and Brown Butter Croutons (New)
4. Brussel Sprouts topped with a Boysenberry Balsamic Dressing and Bacon (New)
5. Beef Tips with Boysenberry Mashed Potatoes (New)
6. Boysenberry Chicken Mole on Cilantro Rice (New)
7. Boysenberry Sangria
8. Boysenberry Cajun Shrimp over Grits (New)
9. Boysenberry BBQ Chick Drumsticks (New)
10. Boysenberry Steak Chili with a Boysenberry Cornbread Muffin (New)
11. Samosas with Boysenberry Chutney
12. Bork Bao Bum Dumpling with Boysenberry Kimchi and Nam Pla (New)
13. Boysenberry Shrimp Ceviche with Tortilla Chips (New)
14. Boysenberry Smoothie (New)
15. Homemade Chips with Boysenberry Onion Dip
16. Boysenberry sausage on a Bun
17. Elote with Boysenberry Mayo, Cotija Cheese, and Boysenberry Tortilla Crumbles
18. Mac and Cheese Bites with Boysenberry Ketchup (new)
19. Glazed Donut Holes with Boysenberry Ice Cream and topped with a Boysenberry Coulis (New)
20. Boysenberry Bread Pudding topped with Boysenberry Coulis and Crème Anglaise Sauce (New)
21. Pastrami Sandwich on a Pretzel Bun topped with Boysenberry Mustard (New)
22. Boysenberry Macron (New)
23. Churro rolled in Boysenberry Sugar (New)
24. Boysenberry Cookiewich (New)
25. Boysenberry Beer
26. Boysenberry Wine

With such a variety of options, I anticipate a much more successful spreading out of guests around the festival instead of the pre-fixe menu which had longer lines. The Tasting Card is $40 ($38 if you have a 2020 Season Pass). Make sure the items you select have an individual price of higher than $5, or a value of what you perceive to be higher than $5 so you get your moneys worth.

Although we took our own food photos at the Boysenberry Festival media preview this past week, the provided images look much better than our night photos. We will feature the provided photos of the food items so you can get a better sense of the high-quality food items. Let's eat!

Looks delicious. I'm bummed I miss the festival every year because it always occurs after my spring break. Once I graduate college next spring and get an actual job, you bet I'm making time to come down to California and try all this deliciousness (the festival has improved drastically since I was in high school!). This and Merry Farm are my two favorite times of the year at Knott's!
Steel: 197 / Wood: 33 / Total: 230
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

It was inevitable. Knott's is closed beginning tomorrow and through the end of the month.

I wonder how this will affect the Boysenberry Festival. Perhaps it will get pushed farther into April? We'll have to see.

All other Cedar Fair parks are pushing back their opening days to April, as well.

Knott's should sell all of their Boysenberry Festival baked goods online for now since everything is shut down.

That is a brilliant way to keep some team members working and bring in some cash. Put the stuff up for delivery!
