The word is out! Manchester Day 2018 was unforgettable!

Thousands of performers paraded through the heart of the city once again to celebrate marvellous Manchester.

What is Manchester Day?

Manchester Day is an annual event that celebrates everything great about the city. It is a day for families, residents and visitors to get together and celebrate all things Mancunian that have made Manchester one of the world’s most iconic cities.

Each year, we give Manchester Day a theme. Find out more about the process of how Manchester Day is created.

The theme for 2018 was The Word on the Street… What was the word on the street for Manchester in 2018? We cametogether to celebrate all that’s great about Manchester, and listened to what people across the city were saying.

Manchester Day 2018 was even bigger and better than ever! As well as an amazing parade through the heart of the city, Manchester’s city centre squares featured a dazzling array of performances, decorations and mouth watering food and drink throughout the day.
