BEAUDESERT'S Gourmet Street Food Festival attracted record crowds to Jubilee Park on Sunday.

Presented by the Design Collective, the event ran from 10am till 2pm with an estimated 4000 visitors dropping in to enjoy the annual Eat Local celebration of all things Scenic Rim.

The Design Collective's Kat Creasey said there was a lot more food at the festival than there had been last year.

"The foodies were a bit more experimental too, using local produce and offering specials and tasting plates," she said.

"The weather was just perfect and everyone had fun eating and listening to live music by Morning Papers, a duo from Brisbane and Chev Wilson from Ipswich."

Ms Creasey said the event was such a success that people had asked why it is only held once a year.

"We would look into doing a night time event in the warmer months," she said.

"A night event would probably include a classic car show, so if anyone has suggestions about where we could stage it, please get in touch via our Design Collective Facebook page."
