With the unqualified success of the Taste of Calico food event at Knott’s Berry Farm, it was only a matter of time. 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. In short, almost the entire park will be accessible while featuring the amazing food that drew fans to the farm from the start. During the event, there will be over 35 food and drink items to choose from, including new 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. Along with the purchase of a $30 tasting card, guests will be able to shop at the 14 artisan booths or at select Knott’s retail stores to purchase special limited event merchandise.

The event will run weekends only, Fridays-Sundays, August 21- September 13. The only way to experience the limited time Taste of Knott’s is with a tasting card purchased in advance at knotts.com (a tasting card is required for event entry). Event hours will be Fridays and Saturdays from 12pm -9pm and Sundays from 12pm to 8pm.
