Events & Festivals

Bringing vibrancy, community and colour to Manchester’s streets.

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

We also run our own Manchester BID street and retail events to help attract more and more people into the heart of Manchester city centre.

We’re proud to have brought some of the most innovative and PR-grabbing installations to town.

The calendar has obviously been disrupted by the ongoing pandemic. However we are crossing all fingers to be able to deliver and support partner events in 2021.

BID Public Events Calendar:

Take a look at our Roof-Top Halloween MonstersHalloween ‘Haunted Maze’, Chinese New Year ‘Piglet’Chinese New Year ‘Golden Dragon’Chinese New Year ‘Warriors’.

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

Manchester stages the best events and we are part of the picture.
