The Manchester Day parade weaves its way through the heart of the city centre in a fusion of colour, music and dance!


The centrepiece of Manchester Day is the stunning parade, weaving its way through the city. The parade itself is usually around one mile long and takes up to an hour to pass any one point!

The parade has a new route for 2019, starting from Princess St (near Canal St), and taking in Portland St and Peter St before travelling along Deansgate to finish near the Cathedral. We can’t wait to explore new streets this year so come out and cheer us on! 

The 2019 route route map will be available in Spring 2019.
