I've been there many times.  It typically focuses on random
craft-oriented things like candles, glass blowing, woodcrafts, etc.
It's outdoors; some booths are under a bridge, but you'd probably want
to be prepared for rain.  I think there's a fee associated with having a
booth but have no idea about the details.

Certainly it'd be a good way to interface with a different sort of crowd
than typically comes to computer events.
