Proceedings will begin at 9.15pm and include local singers performing the nation's tribute, 'A Life Lived with Grace'.
The town council has also confirmed another free-to-attend event will be held on Portishead Show Field on the following day, June 3.
This will feature music from The Rock Project, children's entertainment from Action Pussycat, local craft and community group stalls and a selection of catering stalls.
