Manchester Day, 29 July 2023, free entry - Find Out More

People of Manchester and beyond, let’s get together to celebrate our amazing city!

Manchester Day returns with a re-vamp this year, in an brand-new, ‘dusk-til-dawn’ format on 29 July. Join fellow Mancunians for a free, fun-filled event, celebrating the culture, diversity and creativity of Manchester for one day only. On all day from 12pm to 9pm, there will be “surprises on every street corner” for both young people and adults, with live music, delicious food and drink, pop-up performances, immersive activities, art installations, crafts and market stalls.

Manchester Day is curated by the world-renowned outdoor arts producers Walk the Plank in collaboration with Manchester City Council and Tameside-based carnival arts company Global Grooves. On the day, some of the city centre roads will be closed, so there’s more space for wandering and having fun!

Manchester Day is a chance for people of all ages to have fun while creating memories that last a lifetime. Manchester is one of the world’s most iconic cities, and this event is an ideal opportunity to get together for a street party like no other, as we celebrate this fantastic place we are lucky enough to call home.
