The community competed in friendly contests as part of the first Maidenhead Town Show.
The country show-style event, organised by Enjoy Maidenhead and Craft Coop, was held in the Nicholson's Centre.
People were encouraged to enter competition categories that included knitted items, jams, crafts and cakes.
Outside, crowds in the High Street gathered to watch dogs being judged in categories such as the 'waggiest tail' and the 'cutest puppy'.
Youngsters also took to the stage to compete in a fancy dress competition.
Three-year-old Vrishank Manish, who was dressed as Noddy, and Aashita Panwar, three, dressed as a butterfly, were chosen as winners.
Phoebe Ibison, nine, won the category for best decoration for her beach-themed creation in the cake competition.
Key organiser Deborah Jones said: "The thought behind it was to come up with something that involved as many groups and individuals as possible and to bring them together into the town centre."
Deborah, who is manager of the Craft Coop in the Nicholsons Centre, added: "The competitions were designed to be a real celebration of Maidenhead and a way of seeing all the amazing things people can do."
It is hoped the event will become a regular feature in the town centre.
