When I worked at a Renaissance Festival we were told that going barefoot was absolutely prohibited.
There's the usual, mud, woodchips and wooden floors (so, splinters), broken glass, vomit, pee, dog "accidents" if dogs are allowed at the festival, food spills, and more ! Not to mention that it's a high-traffic area and people can and will step on your feet.
I'm a person who sits on public toilet seats, but I would never want to go barefoot in those port-a-potties.
You might not die, but you could end up stepping in some really disgusting things and you could potentially get cut or otherwise injured and that could get infected and generally make your day pretty crappy and be a health hazard for others.
Just get some tan or black ballet flats.
