Not even COVID-19 restrictions could stop Agfest doing what they do best - supporting agriculture and local businesses.
The four-day field event completely sold out this year, with numbers capped at 10,000 people per day.
Chairman Ethan Williams said it had been great.
"Patrons have been happy, exhibitors have been happy," he said. "Looking out here, there's just bags and bags of stuff leaving the site. Exhibitors said they haven't had the foot traffic around their sites but the amount of sales has still been up around [the numbers of] 2019 Agfest."
Mr Williams said he was glad exhibitors had been able to pull through and profit, regardless of the capped numbers.

The Examiner touched base with David Gibson, owner of West-Bee Honey with his wife Wendy, to see how everything was going after speaking to them on the first day of Agfest.
"It's been very worthwhile," he said.
"It's been a constant flow of clients buying different and varying products that we have on site, and it's been quite successful, we are very happy."
Mr Gibson was very grateful for the site space the business was given, sitting near the front gate.
It was the second time West-Bee Honey had been at Agfest, first appearing in 2019 before the pandemic meant the festival had to transfer online in 2020.
"It has been better for us overall, it's just a shame about the cap [due to COVID-19]," Mr Gibson said.
Agfest organisers had been pushing for 15,000 patrons per day, but the government stood firm on its decision to not up the patron cap.
"It was a bit disappointing to hear but at the end of the day we got the 10,000 and we are back in the paddock, what more could you want," Mr Williams said.
"It would have been nice to have a few more patrons on site for the exhibitors sake, but the people that have come knew they had to spend up and support Tasmanian businesses."
The Agfest site at Quercus Park allowed for plenty of social distancing and free movement around the site.
However, some changes had to be made to alleviate space pressure, such as moving the craft stalls outside into a special craft market.
"It really has shown we have been able to think outside the box and pull it off," Mr Williams said.
The chairman said the highlight of the festival for him was to be physically back in the paddock.
"To see al my committee members, volunteers, past members all come back to help out to get Agfest back in the paddock [was great]," he said.
Looking at the future, Mr Williams didn't want to speculate too much what Agfest would look like in 2022.
"We don't know what 2022 is going to look like COVID wise. It will be interesting to see where we go and what we implement," he said.
Agfest 2022 will start to be developed once brainstorming sessions and feedback on this year's event are completed. However, Mr Williams was quick to reassure that Agfest would be around for a very long time.
"Agfest will never leave," he said. "Next year's our 40th so it's going to be a big one, regardless of whether we are here or in the Cloud, we will be here in some shape.
"[Agfest 2022 will] showcase that after 40 years we are still going strong, and there is no turning back."
The special birthday could see past members return for the celebrations.
But Agfest 2021 isn't finished just yet, with Agfest in the Cloud already underway. The online part of the festival is accessible via the Agfest website.
"The cloud is going to be a big added benefit to Agfest this year, being that a lot of people couldn't secure a ticket," Mr Williams said.
