A one-day event showcasing all that makes our diverse and vibrant city such a great place to live, work and play.

The Festival of Manchester is a one-day festival in Platt Fields Park, featuring entertainment, activities, music, sport and food to celebrate this great city.

The beautiful lakeside area will be the focus of this second annual festival for the people of Manchester, by the people of Manchester. It'll be a fabulous day, throughout the park, of celebrating all that's great about being in Manchester, and showcasing all that makes our diverse and vibrant city such a great place to live, work and play. Come and experience all that Manchester’s many cultures and communities have to offer in…

  • Music: Be captivated by music, dance and spectacular performances from around the globe
  • Words: Laugh, listen and learn through amazing power of words
  • Food: Take your pick from a fantastic line-up of street food stalls serving up delicious international flavours
  • Sports: Try out activities and sports and watch incredible professional demonstrations from a host of different sports
  • Crafts: Be inspired to create amazing art or learn about a new creative pursuit from our local experts

Once again the vibe of a street party will top the whole day off, with plenty of ways for all the family to join in the fun, and a traditional funfair to boot!
