I agree with R Clay Smith. A scooter would be best. Some sites have pathways of crushed stone and some can get muddy if there is a good amount of rain.

Most fields are decent for a wheel chair and as said most have handicap parking (but remember that most parking is just spaces in a field). Another idea is to get a scooter. My wife had (has)a blown apart knee and did okay with the cheap "rental" scooter though got stuck in New England Mall's gravel. We have a few regulars that use their scooters all the time. If you go that route try to get a better one that will go "off road" some.

There is hansicapped parking in most parking lots but some fields have uneven ground and difficult travel in a wheelchair. I would not attempt entering a field when it opens as the crowds can be like the Oklahoma land rush as they enter. Wait a bit. The large parking field across Rte. 20 from May's does have handicapped parking and it is close to the street.

How handicapped friendly is the show? Bringing my 91 year old mom who cannot do distances on her feet any more. What should I expect? Thanks in advance for info and suggestions.
