Events & Festivals

Bringing Vibrancy, Colour and Community

Manchester stages the best events and CityCo Manchester is part of the picture.

We support the city’s civic and public events including Manchester Day, Manchester Jazz Festival, Manchester Science Festival, Manchester Pride, Manchester International Festival and the Christmas Markets.

We also run our own Manchester Business Improvement District (BID) street events to help attract custom into the heart of the city centre and our member retailers and restaurants.

We’re proud to have brought some of the most innovative and PR-grabbing installations to town. Take a look at our Manchester Flower Show, Roof-Top Halloween Monsters, Haunted Maze, Chinese New Year ‘Piglet’, Golden Dragon and Warriors.

We’ve also celebrated Eid, brought floral Show Gardens to the streets at our summer garden party Dig the City and hosted the super-stylish Vogue Fashion’s Night Out for the first time in Manchester.
