I've attended the last two of these events, and they're just marvelous. I'd gladly pay my way in, and yet we get it for free! Workshops in the morning, readings in the afternoon, opens around dinner time, and a 2-hour reading after dinner.
And don't worry, the nice folks at the Blairstown First Aid Station will help you find your way home.
