The day after Software Freedom Day, 4 of us from our Ubuntu Local Community Team set up a booth at a folk festival and gave out about 120 CDs. We didn't walk up to people (mostly); they came to us. One guy did go around to some of the other booths and ask if any of the people who were stuck to their tables were interested in free software, but we had a bit over 150 people just walk up and ask us about it. Sign-ups for our mailing list took 2 pages, and we gave out lots of calling cards ("need help? email or call me"). Didn't seem like they shied away.
