Manchester Day is back! Join us on Sunday 19 June 2022 in Manchester city centre for the fantastic parade and amazing spectacles. 

What is Manchester Day?

Back for its first outing since the last Manchester Day was held pre-Covid in 2019, the spotlight for this year's big return of the city's much-loved free event will be fixed firmly on children and young people.

There'll be a kaleidoscope of colour, sound and culture as youth and community groups from across the city join in the famous parade that has become the highlight of the day.

As always, music and dance will also spill over into the city centre squares for a full afternoon of family entertainment, food and drink. 

Manchester Day happened every year for 10 amazing years up to 2019. After a two-year break we're now delighted to be back in 2022! Manchester Day 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.
