"I think Residents' Weekend is a really good idea and it shows people just what is on offer in the city.
"More should be made of the city and what people can do there, I don't think it is promoted well enough."
Meanwhile, Jared Brown of Gloucester Brewery enjoyed a successful weekend.
He said: "We ran brewery tours throughout Saturday and Sunday.
"We had a great turnout and people showed a real interest in what we were doing. I think the fact that we were actually brewing beer as the tours took place made it quite an experience.
"We also had several converts who didn't normally drink real ale but once they tasted were surprised how much they liked it."
All of the events were either free or special rate entry on what was the second annual Residents' Weekend.
The weekend is aimed solely at people living in postcodes GL1, GL2, GL3 or GL4 in a bid to open their eyes to what the city offers.
