Gardening, cookery and photography enthusiasts submitted nearly 400 entries at the summer show organised by Malmesbury Garden Club.
Visitors admired the exhibits at the town hall put forward by residents from the Malmesbury area.
David Briggs, of Milbourne, won four cups overall from his 17 entries of fruit, vegetables and home baking.
Show organiser Derek Tilney said: “We had lots of visitors because all of the other events were a washout. We were very badly down on vegetables and fruit this year because of the awful weather.
“However, we had a vast selection of very good photographs and baking, and the children’s section was the highlight of the show.”
Jenny Cole, of Burton Hill, Malmesbury, was awarded the Handi Cup in the baking section, while Jebbie Hewitt, of Hullavington, won the Hoskins plate for her floral art exhibit.
Daisy Franklin, eight, of Malmesbury, won in the children’s section for her miniature garden.
