I haven't been to this festival but it looks really great - I'm going
to Sheep and wool in Maryland in May.  Wear really comfortable clothes
and shoes; dress in layers; bring a large empty tote bag for
purchases; when you see something you like, buy it, you won't remember
where you saw it to go back and get it later (or it will be sold out -
at least this is my experience); consider going back to your car to
dump your purchases and jacket if necessary; sunscreen for the
nose/face; shady hat or visor (all these may change if it's cold and
rainy of course.)  Fully charged cel phone to find the rest of your
party; bottle of water.

For Maryland Sheep and Wool, you may want a bag with wheels.
There's enough paving to make it usable once you get in from
the parking area.

And speaking of the parking area: when you park your car, look
around from the diretion of the festival so you can tell where
the car is!  I advise counting telephone poles for landmarks.

And a sandwich, unless you want to try to buy food there.  There
is food, but there are also lines.
