By "easily manageable" I mean that at the boat launch park and outlet trail you can meander in and out among artisan vendors and partake in delicious cuisine from a variety of local restaurants without throngs of people like at the larger ones. Not that this festival doesn't deserve a large crowd because it is well worth it.
There are some wine tasting opportunities, too. All this within a scenic setting along the waterway with parking readily available by boat or car.
One of my favorite artisans, Kayla Stein, will be there with her gorgeous pottery.
