City centre events
Manchester stages the best events, and we are part of the picture. CityCo and the Manchester BID support the city’s civic and public festivals such as Manchester Day, Pride and Manchester International Festival, working with stakeholders to ensure the city is running as smoothly as possible when people get here.
We also run our own flagship events to bring people into Manchester city centre. Our events have included Dig the City, The Manchester Picnic, Manchester Canal Festival and Northern Quarter Street Parties. The BID’s current pillar events are Chinese New Year, MCR Student Night Out, The King Street Festival, One Big Summer Weekend and Halloween in the City.
