- Plan your shopping route. With an estimated 200,000 shoppers over the four day festival, it is easy to miss artist booths. Blackberry Lane is the suggested beginning; a map can be found here.
- Prepare a bag with essentials that you will need through-out the weekend. Shoppers are welcome to bring their own shopping bags for purchases.
