Manchester Day is going to bring the city to life again on Sunday 21 June 2020.

An exuberant celebration of a proud city, for its people, by its people.

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.

Given that this big day out is such a crowd-pleaser, and it was our tenth year, we chose the theme 10 out of 10 for our 2019 event. We gave the best city in the world ten out of ten for its successes in industry, science, music, fashion, education and sporting achievements. It really was an 10 out of 10 event. 

Manchester Day 2019 was even bigger and better than ever! As well as an amazing parade through the heart of the city (look out for our new route), Manchester’s city centre squares featured a dazzling array of performances, decorations and mouth watering food and drink throughout the day.
