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.

Last year over 60,000 people enjoyed the sunshine and watched the parade as it snaked its way through the city centre. Over 2,000 people participated in Manchester Day 2016, including 100 Manchester charities, community groups and companies who transformed the city centre into an amazing party! Find out more about the process of how Manchester Day is created.

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