A massive start to the Orange Wine Festival looks set to continue this week as more visitors flock to the city to both explore wineries and experience the Australian National Field Days.
And Wine Festival manager Charlotte Gundry said there was no issue having both major events coexist on the city's events calendar.
If anything, she says, the Field Days have the chance to boost the festival with more people in town.
"I don't so much see it as a competition," Ms Gundry said.
"With the growth in accommodation in Orange and AirBnBs are pretty big now which means there's enough room.
"The Field Days might help us too as a lot of the people there will likely come along to the night market on the Friday."

The night market will headline week two of the festival this Friday at Robertson Park.
And Ms Gundry said there was plenty of other events across the city and region which give opportunities for people with a range of different interests.
"There are movies, picnics and yoga in the vines which are all more accessible to casual wine drinkers, alongside the more serious masterclasses," she said.
The 30th anniversary lunch at Philip Shaw was another big event which marked a milestone for the region.
"It shows the region really is mature and it's a significant amount of time to be in business," she said.
While the first weekend of the festival went exceptionally well, Ms Gundry expected a small lull with fewer events mi-week - Charred's masterclass an exception - but expected the weekend to be massive after an impressive opening salvo.
Ms Gundry said she'd seen plenty of happy people across the city over the weekend at the Vino Espress, which was "an exploration experience of the region", with upwards of 300 people at several events.
"Angullong sold out, Nashdale Lane sold out, a lot of events were doing quite well despite the tricky weather and the hail which fell for about 30 seconds but overall everyone was pretty happy," she said.
