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 route in 2018 started from from Liverpool Road, taking in Deansgate, Peter Street and Albert Square before returning to Deansgate, then ending in Exchange Square.

The 2019 route will be announced in Spring 2019.
