The Boysenberry Festival is on at Knott's Berry Farm from April 1 through 23. Admission to the theme park is required, and, of course, cash to buy all of the boysenberry goodies you want to try. (There are over 75, so best peruse all before landing on that boysenberry pizza or fry bread, which are sure to be popular entries at the 2017 event.)
