Not only did it give the city economy a boost of almost £1million, which is no mean feat, but it also had a very impressive satisfaction rating of 98%.
It may not be on as big a scale as that arts and cultural festival that takes place along the M8, but then what is?
What Glasgow has is a wide variety of festivals and cultural events throughout the year, from Celtic Connections in January through to the Christmas and New Year events centred in George Square, and so much in between.
The diversity means there is something for everyone and a range of activities to entice people from near and far to the city.
But the satisfaction rating for the Merchant City festival - which is relatively new - is a good sign for the future, with people more likely to return next year and more likely to take part in other festivals taking place in the city.
Whether it is sport, art, comedy, theatre or shopping and fashion the wealth of venues and talent in the city ensures our visitors leave knowing they have spent time in a modern cultural city.
Here's to another successful Merchant City Festival next year.
