Manchester Day

Date & Time

Manchester Day is taking place on Sunday 17 June. The theme for this year is The Word on the Street, where Manchester’s communities will come together to celebrate all that’s great about Manchester, and listen to what people across the city are saying. Now in its ninth year, Manchester Day is one of the city’s most loved events, attracting more than 60,000 people.
