We were provided with complimentary tickets, food passes, and parking to facilitate this post. Thank you Knott’s for the opportunity
This past weekend the kids and I met up with my cousin to venture to Knott’s Berry Farm for a day full of fun – and Boysenberries. Ryan stayed at home with Grammie and I had to switch roles from a breastfeeding mama to a pumping mama for the day. Since my brain has been fried lately with more interrupted sleep (thanks teething) I had to make a list before we headed out to ensure I brought every part I needed. Lists are my BFF.
5 Tips For Enjoying Knott’s Berry Farm With Kids
Be sure to grab a map and circle every bathroom throughout the park.
Both big kids are potty trained – but both like to wait till practically the last moment to tell me they need to go. We didn’t receive a map as soon as we came in (but we did grab one later on!) and the main question I asked employee’s of Knott’s was – Where’s the nearest bathroom??
Take a 20 minute break and go see Lucy’s Really Big Spring Show.
We walked past the stage area about 10 minutes prior to its start. There was music playing and Luke and Aubrey enjoyed some dancing before the show started. My cousin and I enjoyed the break from walking around. The show was fun, and even got all the kids involved with Lucy Says.

Enjoy the Air Conditioning and Visit Snoopy
The kids enjoyed this gigantic Snoopy and I enjoyed a bit of AC. Who knew it would be so warm in March in SoCal?
No Luke, we can’t take him home! He won’t fit in the minivan!
Breastfeeding or Pumping? Visit the Rest Rooms.
If you are a nursing mom or pumping mom, be sure to locate the Rest Rooms on the map to feed your little one or pump. Inside Camp Snoopy this is located across from the outdoor picnic areas. Inside you’ll find changing stations, a sink, and 2 private feeding areas to sit.
Visit Knott’s during the Boysenberry Festival!
The Boysenberry Festival happens every year and celebrates the specialty berry with tons of different food items and beverages. You can purchase a food tasting card for $25. While there’s over 70 food items inspired by the Boysenberry, you can purchase this card that features 6 different tastings (2 are desserts!) to have punched out at the different stations. The Boysenberry BBQ Sauce is amazing so any dish that features this is a must-have!

Another must-have is the Boysenberry Beer that is located in the Wine and Craft Brew Garden. For $25 you can purchase a tasting card that can be used for any of the featured beer or wines. All the pours are VERY generous and you also get a fruit/cheese/cracker plate!
We gave our trays to the kids to keep them full. But they had a great time in this shaded space to work out some energy. It gave my cousin and I a chance to talk and catch up.
After a long day, we headed home. But, we grabbed a sweet friend for the ride home. And for mama? I bought my very own Boysenberry Plant to add to our Farmer Dell Garden!

If you’re looking for a fun day, visit Knott’s Berry Farm during their Boysenberry Festival until April 3rd!
