The final day of Heathcote on Show kicks off on Monday morning.

The festival showcases the regions finest produce as well as offering people gourmet food and exclusive tastings and releases.

The festival spanned from Redesdale to Toolleen as more than 30 wineries, breweries and restaurants hosted special events.

Local business owner and Heathcote on Show volunteer committee member, Judy Maine said the weekend had been a successful one so far.

"On Saturday we had our street fair, so in terms of the town centre Saturday was busier than Sunday," she said.

"We have had a lot of young families and people driving through on their way to somewhere else.

"We have received some positive feedback from wineries telling me the weekend was performing well for business so far."

Ms Maine said the weekend had also been beneficial for the emergency service personnel that attended the event.

"The SES and CFA had one of the highest donations rate of all time," she said.

"It gave them an opportunity to connect with people in the community.

"Many times their association with the public is in an emergency but this gave them time to actually connect with the community."
