Knott’s Berry Farm 100th Anniversary Celebration

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

Wow! You’ve come a long way baby! Nearly 100 years ago, the Knott family settled in the community of Buena Park and began farming 20 acres of land on Highway 39, what’s 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 the blackberry . This new hybrid berry was originally developed by Rudolph Boysen, for whom the berry got its name but Boysen had no luck bringing the berry to market. Luckly Walter did, acquiring it from Boysen and today, the roots of the boysenberry can be traced back to it’s sole proprietor  Knott’s Berry Farm.

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.

The origin of Mrs. Knott’s Fried Chicken: Cordelia Knott started selling jams and jellies made from Walter’s boysenberries and in 1934 to make ends meet during the Great Depression, servied her first chicken dinner meals on her very own wedding china. Charging just 65 cents, word of mouth brought locals and visitors from around the state 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.
