Very cool. I'll be going to the Bluegrass festival. If anyone is going, let me know how it went.

This was a VERY small show - one single section of the convention center, only 2/3 full. Maybe 30-40 vendors. I don't think they advertised very well. They claimed 1k+ on Saturday; I didn't see over 100 when we were there Sunday, and a breakout session we wanted had been canceled; however, the one at which we wound up on local medicinals was interesting.

It was about 45% gear, 45% prepackaged food, and 10% other (essential oils, chicken coops, etc.).

So, really, you all didn't miss much; certainly not for the $20 (two-day) or $15 (one-day) admission fee. It would probably have been a waste of time to table there as ZS, although there were no gun sales, and I don't remember if I actually saw any rebel flags.
