Crowds will turn out for six horse races and two pony races. Prizes will be given by partner Jarrolds for best dressed lady, best hat and best couple.
Fakenham Racecourse's Dalia Courridge said: "There have been more young people attending and people are putting greater effort into their dresses. One of my favourites last year was a lady whose hat and handbag looked like an ice cream cone!"
Attendees can enjoy a jazz band by day and a DJ in the evening, in predicted 23 degree heat.
Races will be from 2.25pm, but Ms Courridge would not be lured into giving tips. She said "If a horse called gin and tonic is running, it will have my support!"
