The Baldock festival is 23 years old this year and people have been flocking to the area to take part in champagne breakfasts, scavenger hunts and a visit to Buntingford Brewery.
Andrew Grudzinski, who helped organise the festival, said he was very pleased with how it was going.
He said: "It's been very successful with five or six events having been sold out, including the festival wine testing.
"It has been hard work but very rewarding. We still have lots of events over the next 10 days.
"The Baldock fire station open day on Saturday should be popular. Last year we had hundreds of people turning up."
