In light of the success of the show, held on June 22 and 23, organizers are looking into hosting the event again next year.
"All of the exhibitors did a fantastic job in making their booths professional. It really, really had a great look to it," said Parry Sound Area Chamber of Commerce chief executive officer Perry Harris.
The Chamber hosted the event at the Bobby Orr Community Centre and partnered with Georgian Bay Country, the Labour Market Group, and the Parry Sound North Star.
Fifty-four exhibitors filled the community centre, representing businesses offering a wide range of services including renovation, new construction, retail, recreation, interior design, real estate and architectural as well as adventure.
"Friday night was very good for attendance, Saturday waned a little bit, because it was a beautiful day," Harris said.
"We already have 11 of the visitors wanting to book for next year. The Chamber now has to sit down and look at how the event went, get some comments, suggestions and so forth."
Harris said the organization is looking into hosting next year's BayPalooza in the first weekend in June.
"I think the weekend we picked, it may have been a little too late and the weather was gorgeous and we can't change the weather, but overall we think it was a phenomenal success."
