Secretary Beth Hern said the event normally attracted about 7000 people, which was more than double the town's population.

She was hoping attendance would increase this year for the show's 120th edition.

"We get about 7000 people, but I hope we get twice as many (this year)," Ms Hern said.

"I have heard that all the shows have been getting considerably higher (attendances) this year, so we are hoping we will do better from that."

Ms Hern said people would travel from places like Brisbane to visit the show.

The program includes events and activities like woodchopping, harness racing, a demolition derby and animal nursery.

"It all comes together to make the show," Ms Hern said.

"Our Showcasing Boonah will be a highlight this year. It's the first time we have done a virtual reality type presentation.

"The woodchopping this year should be huge, because we have two Queensland championships happening.

"It is the first time we have trotting on the Saturday evening program. We've had trots before, but they have been on the Friday.

"There are so many different facets to the whole show, it is hard to say which is going to be the main highlight."

Ms Hern said this year's edition would be like one big birthday party.

"There will be balloons, posters, and we are trying to give it a big birthday party feel," she said.

Adult tickets are $10 for Friday and $18 for Saturday, while a two day pass costs $25.

Primary school children go free.
