Premier Speedway said more than 50 teams had shown interest in attending and would be on hand to sign autographs.
Driver interviews will be broadcast on a big screen.
The event will also include free activities for children, including a giant slide and face painting.
The Warrnambool State Emergency Services will run a sausage sizzle with all proceeds going back to the SES.
Drinks will also be available.
Fan Appreciation Day runs from 10am-noon at Warrnambool Showgrounds on January 28.
