The finest local produce, food and musical talent was put on show across a week of events to celebrate the end of the season at the inaugural Katanning Winter Wrap up.

The five day festival, put on from August 17 to 21, celebrated all things winter to inject a buzz back into the town during a typically quiet period of the year.

The festivities kicked off at the Katanning Sheep Yards on the Monday for the Mid-week warmer, where families had the opportunity to meet lambs alongside a feast and beverages from the Little Wheel-Bar-O.

The following day an all day buffet was put on Taylor Street to celebrate the multicultural food origins in the town, with food from Malaysia, Indonesia and the Cocos Islands all available.

The Katanning Farmers Markets were a buzz when the weekend hit, with winter themed food specials all available to warm people up.

The marquee event Winter Wrap Up Catch Up took place on the Saturday night.
