Major City Events
Manchester stages the best events and CityCo and Manchester BID are part of the picture. We support the city’s civic and cultural events including Manchester Day, Manchester Jazz Festival, Manchester Pride, Manchester International Festival and the Christmas Markets.
See below for large-scale events that will attract increased footfall and impact operations and/or business planning.
