Littlewick Show is expected to draw thousands of people to Braywick Showground in Ascot Road, Maidenhead tomorrow.
The annual August bank holiday event features exhibitions, live music, crafts and a children's funfair to name just a few of the attractions.
Organisers hope to make this year's the biggest yet and attract anywhere from 10-12,000 people.
"Littlewick Show is a family day out, with something for everybody, whether young or young at heart," said Valerie Bosley of the Littlewick Green Show Society, which organises the event.
The show has been held annually since 1934, only pausing during the Second World War.
It is designed to bring the community together and help raise money for charities, which set up stalls around the grounds.
It is sponsored by the Louis Baylis (Maidenhead Advertiser) Charitable Trust and the Shanly Foundation.
Entertainment is set to include a dog show, a horse show, ferret racing, Basil and Crew mobile farm, Waltham St Lawrence Silver Band and Maidenhead Concert Band.
Prizes are up for grabs across hundreds of show competitions including horticulture, art, equestrian events, classic cars - with vehicles dating back to the early 1900s – and children's categories.
Scores of entrants are expected for many of the contests, but Valerie appealed for more people to put forward their floral art creations.
