Pittsworth’s Craft and Fine Food event a success
The 16th annual Pittsworth Craft and Fine Food Spectacular was earlier this month, with event organisers saying it was their biggest year yet.
Showcasing the skills and talents of more than 45 exhibitors, one third of which were local artisans, there was a wide variety of things to see and do over the two-days.
Co-ordinator of the event Brenda Prentice said the spectacular went better than she expected and was extremely successful.
Mrs Prentice said over 1700 people attended in total, with people travelling from all across South-East Queensland to check out what was on offer.
She said feedback from the stall holders was excellent, with a lot of them almost selling out.
The weather for the event was spectacular, making the park set-up a roaring success.
The other displays around town, including the Crafty Quilters display and the bridal display in St Andrew’s Church, were also a great success, with organisers saying they received beautiful comments and positive feedback.
The bridal display featured over 30 weddings dresses from brides who married between 1939 and 2010, while the Crafty Quilters had their quilts out for all to see, as well as other craft items for sale, which they said were very popular.
However, it wasn’t just exhibitors who experienced a roaring trade.
With cars lining the main street and foot traffic significantly increased, the event brought masses of people into the town, boosting the local economy and supporting Pittsworth’s businesses and shop fronts.
More information and photos of the Craft and Fine Food Spectacular will be in next week’s edition of The Pittsworth Sentinel.
