Art Fest

Has anyone gone to this ArtFest thing is Washington state? It takes place in April and seems to be a real mecca for some. I am thinking about going, but any recomendations would be appreciated.
Thanks all,

I've heard of this - I think anything which encourages free unbridled creative lay for three days has to be a good thing.

There's a wonderful Winnicott (British child psychiatrist) quote about creative play and how it's the only time we get to experience the whole of the self - meaning both the bits we like but also other, buried parts - the insecurities and the frustrations, even agner when it doesn't go well - and that that is why it's so vital for everyone.

Not to mention the fun aspect!
