The event was put on by Nailsea and District Horticultural Society and more than 400 people attended to see the impressive items on show.
Organisers recorded a huge rise in competitors compared to last year with almost 50 per cent more vegetable entries.
Society chairman Martyn Davies said: “There were splendid displays in all categories and plenty of entertainments and refreshments.
“All exhibitors helped to make sure that high standards were met and there was good friendly competition in all classes.
“In the horticultural classes, judges were particularly impressed by Jeff Williams’ shallots, Mike Sheppard’s gladioli and roses and Jeff Withers’ pot plants.
“Sue Irwin excelled in the cookery classes, winning an award for best exhibit and the trophies for most points in that section.
“The prize for most points in the horticultural classes was won by Cyndy Sallnow.”
A huge number of volunteers helped out on the day and organisers would like to thank everyone who supported the event.
