People have been queueing at the Dubbo Show Society office in Fitzroy Street to buy entry and amusement ride tickets or exchange Discover vouchers for them.
The 2021 Regional Australia Bank Dubbo Show kicks off at 7am on Friday and will run until 5pm on Sunday.
On Wednesday, show society secretary Sue Hood told of a "permanent queue at the show office" of people eager to get tickets to attend and have fun at the 2021 show.
The show society will not accept Discover vouchers at the gates of the show on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for reasons including the "need to register everyone by name as they enter".

Earlier this week, Dubbo and district residents were told they had until Thursday afternoon to redeem the vouchers at the show office.
The opening of the show on Friday will mark two years since residents experienced the fun and excitement of the event after COVID forced the cancellation of the 2020 version.
Mrs Hood said the cancellation of last year's show had energised the public and volunteers, who were putting in long hours at Dubbo Showground on the corner of Wingewarra and Fitzroy streets.
The 2021 show will be officially opened by former NSW Rural Fire Service commissioner and now head of Resilience NSW Shane Fitzsimmons at 3pm on Saturday at the showground grandstand.
It will include the naming of the 2021 Dubbo Showgirl and be preceded by the Bob Berry Real Estate Grand Parade at 2.30pm.
Special guests at the official opening will also include NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller and Volunteer Rescue Association Commissioner Mark Gibson.
Mr Fitzsimmons is expected to thank first-responders in his official address.
