Record numbers have turned out for the event billed as the Great Yorkshire Show's 'little sister'.
12,061 people attended Countryside Live over the weekend in Harrogate, which is an increase of more than 1,000 on the previous record.
The event also celebrated its 10th anniversary with a record number of competitive entries - more than 3,000 were recorded for the first time.
Show Director Bill Cowling said: "Countryside Live and the Great Yorkshire Show are very much separate events but this has helped make up for the disappointment of the summer.
"Financially it won't make a difference in the greater schemes of things but it is just lovely to be back hosting a successful and happy show.
"We have continued to improve little by little over the 10 years and aim to do so again next year, to do the best we can for our supporters."
