Show President Andrew Searle is expecting an influx of visitors.

"What we're finding now is people are wanting to come down and actually stay for the weekend because it's really turned into a weekend event now.

He says the show is being well-supported by the business community.

"We actually did a personal walkaround to all of the businesses in the Camperdown community and the Camperdown businesses were absolutely fantastic. They were all fully supportive of the event.

The Princes Highway will be closed at Camperdown on Saturday between 7am and 5pm.

Highway traffic will be detoured along Scott Street and the Old Geelong Road.

Little Manifold Street will also be closed between Brooke Street and Cressy Street.

Corangamite Mayor Jo Beard says residents will still be able to access local shops over the weekend.
