Major City Events

Manchester stages the best events and CityCo and Manchester BID are part of the picture. We are proud to support the city’s civic and cultural events including Manchester Day, Manchester Pride and Christmas in the city, and stage our own events to add vibrancy and help attract extra custom into the heart of the city centre, all year round.

Take a look at our #FestiveSundaysFloral street fests, Student shopping events with Manchester Arndale and Pride in the city. Looney Tunes street art trail and Halloween #MCRMonsters and Haunted Maze. Chinese New Year giant Tiger and Piglet sculptures, Golden Dragon and Light Show.

We have also hosted Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, celebrated Eid, supported Bee in the City and staged The King Street Festival. And brought Show Gardens to the streets of Manchester at Dig the City.

The calendar below picks out some of the largest footfall-driving events and festivals that could impact business planning and/or operations.
