City Events & Festivals

Manchester stages the best events and CityCo and Manchester Business Improvement District are part of the picture. We support the city’s civic and public events including Manchester Day, Manchester Jazz Festival, Manchester Pride, Manchester International Festival and the Christmas Markets.

We also run our own events to help attract custom into the heart of the city centre and our retailers and restaurants. We are 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 Dig the City and hosted Vogue Fashion’s Night Out for the first time in Manchester.
