Taste of Knott's

While the theme park remains closed, Knott’s Berry Farm is introducing another new outdoor dining and retail experience beginning August 21 with the all-new Taste of Knott’s. Expanding upon the popular Taste of Calico introduced earlier this month, Taste of Knott’s will celebrate classic flavors from around the park including new and one-of-a-kind food, drink, and merchandise offerings throughout Ghost Town, Fiesta Village, and Boardwalk. With over 35 food and drink items to choose from, the Taste of Knott’s event will offer more food variety with the addition of Mexican-inspired cuisine, Knott’s famous BBQ offerings, and classic Knott’s dishes pulled from the pages of the celebrated Knott’s Berry Farm Cookbook. In addition to dining, guests can shop at the 14 artisan booths or at select Knott’s retail stores to purchase special limited event merchandise. This special dining and retail experience is complemented by the unique Knott’s Berry Farm atmosphere that can’t be found anywhere else. 

The only way to experience the limited-time food event is with a Taste of Knott’s Tasting Card. Regular (ages 12+) tasting cards are $30 and include 5 tastings. Junior (ages 3-11) tasting cards are $15 and include 3 tastings. Children 2 and under are free. Tasting Card required for event entry. One tasting card, per person, per entrance. Tasting Cards will be limited each day and can sell out.
