With the sun making a reappearance on Sunday, thousands flocked to City Park to partake in some Tasmanian food and wine for the final day of Festivale.
Chairman David Dunn said it had been a really good few days.
"Friday night was great with good numbers on the gate - just over 8500," he said.
He said unfortunately numbers were down on Saturday due to the wet weather.
"We still had strong numbers, still about 10,000 people," he said.
"What was really pleasing is a high percentage of the presale tickets were presented, so people made the commitment to come and they still did.
"We're about 3000 down on last year's Saturday, but with the rain and the forecast that was only to be expected.
"We had a couple of heavy showers at lunchtime and mid-afternoon, so if people were wondering whether or not to go, I think that would have been enough to change their minds."
Mr Dunn said on Sunday afternoon, the park filled up with people keen to enjoy a few hours of sunshine at the festival.
"You've got to take the good with the bad, and we still had strong attendance which is really good," he said.
Mr Dunn said he was walking around the festival chatting to stallholders, and noticed many had sold-out signs up.
"That's really pleasing to see, and that means they've had a really good event," he said.
"It's not all about the numbers coming through. As long as people are spending and buying while they're here, that all goes toward making it successful."
Mr Dunn said at this year's festival he even had a chance to check out some of the entertainment.
"What I really did enjoy, and for the first time actually had a chance to go and listen to, was the comedy on Friday night with Denise Scott," he said. "Then Vanessa Amorosi on Saturday night was just absolutely incredible. The whole place was on their feet, and she really does know how to entertain."
The Festivale stallholder awards were announced on Saturday evening after much deliberation from judges.
Sailor Food Truck took out the top honour, and owner Jolene Da Silva said it was a great surprise.
"It was quite unexpected. We didn't actually realise there were awards for that kind of thing, so when we won that was really cool, we loved it," she said.
She said their half crayfish and the King Island crayfish arancini had been a hit with patrons over the course of the festival, even despite the rain.
