Town businesses and stallholders from further afield did a roaring trade, with some stalls selling out by the early afternoon.
The festival spirit was enhanced by the sound of Relentless Rockabilly band, who got more than feet tapping as visitors danced in the area in front of the auction shed.
Organised by Matt Horsefield and Katie Kireja, it is hoped the event will be the first of many.
Matt said: “We are very, very pleased with how its all gone.
"There was a great atmosphere and the stallholders all had a great day too.
"For me personally, it was great as well, making some good contacts and even getting a supplier of scones for the Advocate.
“We want to thank everyone who supported the event and want to say a special thank you to Nicola Marshall, West Lindsey Market Towns Manager, whose support has been incredible."
Matt added: “We are already talking about dates – so watch this space.”
West Lindsey District Council supported financially providing funding for the band.
This was paid for from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, which is government funding allocated to local councils and West Lindsey’s funding allows for the use of the money to increase footfall in town centres.
Nicola Marshall said: “Footfall on the day was definitely up on a usual Saturday and there was a buzz in the Market Place with the music and traders.
"Comments such as ‘They are great we need more of this in the town’ were heard as the band played.
“The event was successful in promoting the town and its businesses – the majority of the traders were local and other high street businesses contributed to a raffle, which had a value of £600 in prizes.
"I am looking forward to working in partnership with Matt and Katie, plus the Town Council, on another food and drink event in the town centre.”
