Knott’s Berry Farm Celebrates Its 100th Anniversary With Grand Summer-Long Celebration

In 2020, Knott’s Berry Farm will present “A Knott’s Family Reunion,“ a summer- long event paying tribute to the Knott family’s transcendent history by celebrating the last 100 years of memories in the making.

Ghost Town Main Street 1967-OC Archives

The Knott family’s American dream began in the berry fields of Buena Park from a curbside berry stand in 1920 and grew into the world-renowned theme park it is today. What started with a humble farm evolved into a premier destination that has come to witness 100 years of historical and timeless memories shared among friends, neighbors and families from around the world.

To commemorate Knott’s Berry Farm’s milestone anniversary, the park will present “A Knott’s FamilyReunion,” a summer-long event paying tribute to Knott’s history and legacy of family fun. Guests will be immersed in a once-in-a-lifetime celebration featuring festive park décor, themed food items, unique entertainment, exclusive merchandise and special surprises along the way, all paying homage to the nostalgia that surrounds the historic theme park. Details about the exciting 100th anniversary celebration festivities will be announced in the coming months.

Berry Stand c.1920

Background
Nearly 100 years ago, the Knott family settled in the community of Buena Park and began farming 20 acres of land on Highway 39, now known as Beach Blvd. Around 1930, Walter and Cordelia Knott came upon what eventually Walter named the boysenberry – a cross between a loganberry, red raspberry and

blackberry – a new hybrid originally developed by Rudolph Boysen, for whom the berry got its name. While Boysen had no luck bringing the berry to market, Walter did, acquired it from Boysen and today, the roots of the boysenberry can be traced back solely to Knott’s Berry Farm.

Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner
To make ends meet during the Great Depression, Cordelia Knott started selling jams and jellies madefrom Walter’s boysenberries and in 1934, served her first chicken dinner meals on her very own wedding china, charging just 65 cents. Through word of mouth, locals and visitors from around the state began stopping by to enjoy the famous fried chicken dinner meals. To entertain the hundreds of customers lining up at the restaurant for a chicken dinner meal, and to pay homage to the pioneering spirit of his grandparents along with his love of the Old West, Walter built a working Ghost Town, eventually becoming the first of Knott’s Berry Farm’s four themed areas. Slowly Walter brought in relics from other deserted ghost towns and Knott’s Ghost Town as it exists today emerged, becoming the heart and soul of the park. The Knott’s vision and imagination led to the creation of the themed areas that celebrate California’s vast history and landscape. Through hard work and dedication, Walter and Cordelia, along with their four children, created a special place for families to come together to build lasting memories. The “Knott’s Family Reunion” will be the biggest celebration the park has ever hosted to date.

“The Knott family vision and values led to the birth of Knott’s Berry Farm, and through this milestonecelebration it is our opportunity to honor the last 100 years of remarkable memories that have shaped our history,” said Jon Storbeck, General Manager of Knott’s Berry Farm. “The 100th-anniversarycelebration embraces the farm’s rich history and signifies the importance of the Knott family’scommitment to building a place for generations of guests to create lifelong memories.”

The best way to enjoy all of the fun offered during the 100th anniversary celebration at Knott’s along with all of the other exciting Seasons of Fun events is with a 2020 Season Pass. A Regular Season Pass includes unlimited admission in 2020 to Knott’s Berry Farm with no blackout dates, and a Gold SeasonPass includes unlimited admission in 2020 to both Knott’s Berry Farm and Knott’s Soak City Waterpark with no blackout dates. Knott’s Season passes are now available at the best offer of the year. Regular Passes are $99 or eleven easy payments of $8.00 after an initial payment and Gold Passes are $120 or

eleven easy payments of just $9.50 after an initial payment. These offers end on October 27, 2019. Applicable taxes and fees apply. Payment plans are only available at knotts.com.

The Knott’s Boysenberry Festival Returns and Introduces a New Lineup of Tasty Boysenberry Treats and Festive Entertainment, March 16- April 8

The Knott’s Boysenberry Festival is a annual food-inspired event that celebrates the park’s historic roots by highlighting the little berry that started it all, the boysenberry. This year’s festival will feature over 75 new and returning boysenberry-inspired creations crafted by the Knott’s culinary team. Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in a tantalizing line up of dishes ranging from savory foods with a boysenberry twist to refreshingly sweet and tangy drinks and one-of-a-kind specialty desserts that can only be found at Knott’s Berry Farm during this time of the year. In addition to the tasty treats, the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival offers a wide selection of daily entertainment, live music and fun activities for guests of all ages to enjoy. This year’s festival has expanded to 24 days, starting March 16 and running daily through April 8.

The historic boysenberry is a cross between a loganberry, red raspberry and blackberry and is named after its originator Rudolf Boysen. The Knott family was the first to successfully harvest and sell the boysenberry on the land that is now known as Knott’s Berry Farm.
Some of the tastiest and most unique food items are rolled out exclusively during the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival.

This year’s appetizing lineup includes the first ever boysenberry quesadilla made with a boysenberry-infused flour tortilla, paired with boysenberry salsa, boysenberry sour cream, sprinkled with cotija and mozzarella cheese. Plus, the boysenberry pierogies with onions, bacon and boysenberry sour cream will be bursting with a combination of sweet and savory flavors. Other flavorful items that will be prepared and served to perfection include the slow cooked boysenberry short ribs, the juicy meat is smothered in boysenberry hoisin sauce served over butter basmati rice and complete with chopped green onions will leave guests asking for more. The guest favorite and finger-lickin’ boysenberry chicken wings will also be available during the festival; the irresistible wings are smothered in the delicious and popular boysenberry BBQ sauce which is made exclusively at the Farm. The meaty and boysenberry inspired items also include the very filling boysenberry grilled sausage on a fresh roll prepared with a fresh farm-baked roll, topped with boysenberry ketchup, relish and mustard. For guests craving a refreshing drink, Knott’s is offering an all-new boysenberry boba tea which consists of boysenberry milk tea and chewy berry-soaked tapioca balls served over ice. The boysenberry elote is one of the satisfying treats guests will be able to find in the streets of Ghost Town. The lightly grilled corn is smothered in fresh boysenberry butter, mayo and perfectly topped off with cotija cheese. The Festival also offers a variety of sharable snacks for the family including a new vegetarian/vegan option like the highly enjoyable boysenberry hummus served with pita bread and prepared with garden-fresh boysenberries. Sweets and desserts are a key part of the festival and this year the culinary team is introducing the scrumptious, perfectly bite-sized boysenberry coconut macaroons, dipped in a decadent chocolate ganache, which are great to enjoy while strolling through the park. A great option to indulge in a variety of new and returning food items during the festival is by purchasing a tasting card priced at $30 which offers 8 of the new food options per card; guests can select any 8 items of their choice. Returning and other signature boysenberry items will also be available for purchase a la carte during each day of the festival. Tasting cards are available at Knotts.com or in the theme park.

Guest can also take home a taste of the boysenberry festival with limited edition merchandise that can be found throughout the park, such as a new boysenberry bath and body line including soaps, salt soaks, bath bombs, lip balms (introducing three new flavors) and candles. New to the festival this year is Knott’s sugar-free boysenberry concentrate, a low calorie, no sugar version of Knott’s popular drink, a wide selection of boysenberry chocolates including boysenberry versions of milk chocolate bars, truffles, caramel squares, peanut butter and jelly cups. New and exclusive to Knott’s Berry Farm this year is the all-new boysenberry Jelly Belly.

Unique boysenberry inspired products with a homemade twist will also be available as the Craft Fair returns offering a variety of products like boysenberry cashew nut brittle, boysenberry pie shaped homemade accessories and more.

The Cauldron is more than just a bar, there is also a whole menu that features French-casual bites with a wicked twist, local craft 
beer, themed cocktails and a wine from various regions in California. Their house spirit “Drink”, The Grey Witch, is wonderfully delectable and refreshing. But there is more than what meets the eye. Our personal favorite treat from the menu are the Bacon Jams, if you love Bacon, be sure to try this smoky and sweet treat when you visit. Our other favorite item is the Boeuf Bourguignon which is a delicious French Beef Stew made famous by the late Julia Child. Keep in mind when planning your visit to the cauldron that the kitchen is open until 11:0 p.m.

The menu and atmosphere is tailored and created by the brilliant, Lara Hanneman. Having worked as Creative Director for Knott’s Berry and Scary Farm, she brought her talent, imagination, taste and eye to this new and exciting establishment. Lara and her team poured so much passion into creating this Witch themed Bar/restaurant/Lounge, all who enter will fall in love with the atmosphere and magic. This is truly a wonderful and unique place that one should not miss out on. As someone who LOVES everything spooky, I immediately got excited when I heard about it and the people who are behind it. When we entered the tavern, it is everything that I hoped for and so much more.

There is so much to take in from the artwork (which is featuring art by many amazing and talented local artists), the magic, and the secrets. From the magic glass over the fireplace where ghosts and spirits visit the tavern to the cauldron that is always bubbling. With Magic, Nothing is EVER as it seems, with The Cauldron comes surprises. One can discover the secret room… perhaps when approaching the Book Case. MWHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA!  3:)

Overall this is an amazing new place where one who is looking for an immersive and magical evening should visit. Perhaps, even those who are looking to embrace the spookiness of life or even visit with their coven. This is a definite MUST for those who love Horror and Halloween. There is magic and secrets awaiting for those who visit The Cauldron. The Cauldron Spirits and Brews is open Wednesday – Sunday from 2:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m. And is located literally across the street from Knott’s Berry Farm.

I hope you enjoy this look inside The Cauldron. More Info on The Cauldron Spirits and Brews is provided down below.
