Flavours of Mudgee is a free community street festival event which brings together local stallholders and their regional wine, food, and produce. The street festival brings the CBD alive as crowds gather to have dinner in the street and taste the flavours of Mudgee. In 2018, Hi Tech Creative was awarded the project of developing a website to promote the Flavours of Mudgee street festival. The website was to be lightweight with a strong focus on mobile platform support while still maintaining an ease of use and adaptability that allowed event staff to react quickly to reassignments and changes to the stallholder locations

The most significant aspect of the website build involved the construction of an isometric event map of where the event takes place annually. We built models for landmarks that allowed for a quick visual reference of current location for visiting tourists to help with locating stalls. The event map contained interactive markers for all stallholders, amenities and information booths plus a sidebar for browsing and searching. A simple tap on the preferred location automatically centres the map on that location and provides information on that stall holder via a handy on screen pop up.

A stall list was also developed to provide quick browsing of all participants and registering for the site allowed for users to mark and filter their favourite stalls ahead of time as well as leave tasting notes on each stall for future reference.Behind the scenes a custom back-end was constructed on the Wordpress platform to allow for extensive editing and modification of stall details and assignments from the event staff team as well as easy drag and drop editing and modification of the basic website pages.
