Commissioned by Manchester City Council Produced by Walk the Plank Created by Manchester People
Manchester Day was created in 2010 and is now a spectacular addition to the city’s annual calendar of events. Conceived with the ambition of celebrating the creativity and diversity synonymous with Manchester, it is a great opportunity for communities to celebrate individual and collective pride in their city as well as to portray the stories of what makes them feel uniquely Mancunian in a highly visual way.
Manchester Day has grown each year, bringing a dazzling array of costumes, music, dance and incredible structures to the city centre’s streets. Over 2,000 participants from 90 community and social groups across Manchester get involved each year, aiming to wow an audience of more than 60,000 residents and visitors who line the streets of the city centre.
With its many benefits for the city, the Manchester Day brings communities, artists and businesses together to create something truly special for Manchester.
