The fest is accessible and ASL-interpreted.

Palate pleasers of all stripe line the midway, from Caribbean curries to Thai noodles to hand roasted coffees to Middle-eastern, Bavarian, Mexican, Cajun, Italian plus good ole American comfort food. Over 50 vendors display their wares much of it handmade or fair trade, emphasis on eco-friendly.
