He'll watch gun dog and falconry displays before meeting local young farmers at the 2 day event which attracts around 56 thousand people.
The television series that documents Prince William's time with the Search and Rescue operations coincides with the news that the service is to be taken away from the RAF and privatised - a move that the prince is believed to have opposed.
ITV News' Royal Editor Tim Ewart reports:
Prince William is to feature in a BBC documentary about the Search and Rescue service, where he has served as a Sea King pilot.
You can watch a preview of the documentary below:
BBC One Wales have released a short preview video for Helicopter Rescue, the documentary featuring Prince William and the Search and Rescue team at the prince's base at RAF Valley on Anglesey.
The Duke of Cambridge is shown piloting a helicopter on a rescue mission to a slate quarry in Blaenau Ffestiniog.
One of his crew are winched from the ground after rescuing a boy who had fallen off an old railway bridge onto rocks.
"As captain you're trying to play out the entire rescue, the transit to the rescue and back again in your mind, and pick up any circumstances or problems you can foresee, and try and fix them on the ground before you get airborne," he says in the programme.
Prince William is to be the subject of a BBC documentary series featuring his work as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot.
Helicopter Rescue will air on BBC One Wales in April, and will show the Duke of Cambridge serving with C Flight of 22 Squadron at RAF Valley on Anglesey since 2010.
Speaking in the documentary, he said:
"There's no greater feeling than when you've actually done some good and saved someone's life," he said.
"I don't think there's any greater calling in life… to be able to see a son or daughter's face when you bring their mother or father back from the edge of death - it's quite powerful."
Helicopter Rescue will air on BBC One Wales on Monday 8 April at 8:30 pm.**
Among the 12 bases from where search and rescue operations are launched is RAF Valley on Anglesey, where the Duke of Cambridge is based.
Under the contracts due to be unveiled tomorrow, the total number of bases is expected to be cut from 12 to10 although it is not clear which bases will be closed.
Assurances have already been given that the Duke will be moved to another part of the military rather than being employed by the firm that is awarded the search and rescue contracts.
Prince William's search-and-rescue base at RAF Valley on Anglesey was the busiest across the UK last year.
The team took part in more than 300 rescues, saving numerous lives on the mountains of Snowdonia and at sea. The Prince has been praised for his role in the rescues.
