Knott’s Boysenberry Festival
In 1926, Walter Knott created the Boysenberry - a hybrid of the Loganberry, blackberry and raspberry. He began selling his new creation at his roadside fruit stand in Buena Park which eventually grew to a restaurant and later, America’s first theme park – Knott’s Berry Farm. Knott's honors their storied past during their Annual Boysenberry Festival running the month of April. The jam packed event features live entertainment, interactive experiences and over 70 boysenberry creations including delicious barbeque, mouth-watering desserts, refreshing beverages and the popular Fun Bun.
