Knotts Summer Nights 2022 is May 20th – September 5th

Year after year Knotts Berry Farm has continued to bring us some really fun food events. Knotts Summer Nights is set up in front of the live stage with numerous food booths, a variety of summer games to play, and live music throughout the evening. You can also check out the previous year’s Knotts Summer Nights event.


Chicken Waffle Slider with a Honey Mustard Coleslaw

The selection of food items to choose from is impressive. Here is the full list below as well as photos from opening weekend. My personal favorites included the Chicken Waffles Sandwich. The waffle is basically a dessert and is so tasty.


Carnitas Tacos with Chimichurri and Cojita Corn

My second favorite food items were the Carnitas Tacos with Corn topped with the Cojita Cheese. The tacos are drizzled with a delicious chimichurri and were piled high with delicious tender carnitas.


Apple Rose Cider

Finally, it’s an added bonus that you can use your tasting ticket on a variety of alcoholic beverages. The Apple Rose Cider is amazing and so refreshing.
