The My Kent Big Weekend event, launched by Visit Kent seven years ago, is part of English Tourism Week, from March 16 to 24.
Sandra Matthews-Marsh, chief executive at Visit Kent, said: "My Kent Big Weekend is all about having fun and celebrating the variety of attractions and hidden gems which make our county such a popular destination for day visits and short breaks.
"These attractions, and the wide range of sporting and creative activities available, entertain our visitors but they also add so much to our quality of life as Kent residents.
"My Kent Big Weekend gives us all an opportunity to get out and about and discover new days out and entertainment on our doorstep – and then we are able to recommend those experiences to all our friends and families."
To enter the ballot for tickets, go to My Kent Big Weekend. The website will remain open for applications until midnight on Monday 18 February.
Two free tickets per Kent household are allowed and will be allocated after the ballots have been drawn for each attraction available.
