The Morpeth Clock Tower bell ringers will begin the activities at 9.30am, with the official opening following at 10am.
The highlight of the event will be a parade through the town centre, which will including 200 local youngsters, vintage cars, more than 100 Harley Davidson motorbikes, and marching bands.
Visitors can also enjoy a continental market, chainsaw sculpture shows, a fancy dress competition and falconry displays.
Fair Day coordinator, Tony Osborne, said: "If the weather is fine we expect between 30,000 and 35,000 people."
There will be a free park and ride scheme involving vintage buses running between County Hall and the town centre from 9.30am to 5pm.
