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 will be announced in winter 2017/18. The theme for 2017 was Abracadabra!.  In a celebration of all things magic, over 2000 performers took us on a magical adventure of wonder, invention and illusion.

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