The Dubbo Show committee are apprehensive what affect the drought may have on attendance numbers for this year's event in May, but encourage those to make a nice family fun day of it.
Dubbo Show Society president Chris Edwards said it's getting to the point where the drought has being going on for so long that it's depressing.
'We're a little bit apprehensive the way the drought has been and what affect that might have," he said.
"We're hopeful that we can hold up our numbers form the last few years and we hope for those people still in drought, that they'll come put and have a social time at the Dubbo Show," he said.
This year is the 146th Dubbo Show and there will be some new attractions including the Robertson's Family Circus, and a dog high jump competition.
But there will still be the old favourites such as the fireworks and entertainment at Bordy's Bar, which is this year being presented by the Viper Creek Band.
The Showtime FX team will also be a new attraction which will surely entertain the mass crowds on the Saturday night.
"The pavilion is on pretty much the same (as previous year's) but this year we have a Lego challenge" Mr Edwards said.
The challenge will be set up for three to seven year-olds and eight to 14-year-olds, with three heats set per day, concluding Sunday at the finals.
Mr Edwards said there will be a great variety of entertainment on offer for all ages.

"If you can't find something that you like then you're not really trying," he said.
The 2018 Dubbo Showgirl winner Josie Anderson recently attended the Sydney Royal, but was unsuccessful in her attempt at being crowned the Sydney Royal Showgirl winner.
Mr Edwards said although Josie didn't get through to the finals, they were all very proud of her back in Dubbo.
"She's been a great representative for not only the Show, but the city and people in western NSW," he said.
"We would like to thank Josie for representing us so well."
Due to the cool weather last year, attendance numbers were down, and if the temperatures continued in 2019, Mr Edwards still encouraged people to come along as there was plenty to see in the pavilion.
Tickets can be purchased at 123.tix.com or at the gate, but Mr Edwards said it will be a little cheaper purchasing online.
