Buskers Kids Day will be held at the Coffs Harbour Racing Club on that Tuesday and will feature as its main attraction the 12m high Wheel Of Steel.

This will be the only appearance of the Wheel of Steel at this year's festival.

"Buskers Kids Day has become one of the most popular attractions of the festival and has grown every year," Buskers Festival organiser John Logan said.

"It also features clowns, jugglers, jumping castles, acrobats and a whole lot more and best of all once you are inside the gate, all the entertainment and rides are free.
