Warrnambool's first Taste of the Coast Festival is the perfect place to relax and unwind on a Sunday afternoon.
Organiser Jeremy Thulborn decided to hold the event the day after the city's second annual Oktoberfest.
"It's a chance to showcase the locals," Mr Thulborn said.
He said the event offered a "relaxed Sunday afternoon vibe", with a selection of food, wine, whiskey and cocktails on offer.
Mr Thulborn said there was also live entertainment by The Beachniks, who entertained the crowd with their 'Nu-Surf tunes, which are described as a blend of dub reggae, `60s garage surf rock, folk pop and jazz and Flynn Gurry.
"It would be good to make it an annual event," he said.
"We didn't have anything on the Sunday last year so we decided to make a weekend of it."
Mr Thulborn said he would decide whether to host it again in 2020 based on its success.
"We'll see how we go today.
"We'd like to make it into a food and wine festival."
Patrons can taste a selection of food and enjoy the live music until 8.30pm.
Tickets cost $20.
