What is Manchester Day?
Manchester Day is an annual event that celebrates everything great about the city. This year celebrates its 10th Manchester Day so I am sure it will be bigger and better than ever!
It is a day for families, residents and visitors to get together and celebrate all things Mancunian that have made Manchester one of the world’s most iconic cities.
There are many different things to see and do at this special event, which is taking place on Sunday 23rd June 2019.
The centrepiece of Manchester Day is the stunning parade, weaving its way through the city. The parade itself is usually around one mile long and takes up to an hour to pass any one point!
The parade has a new route for 2019, starting at 1pm from Princess St (near Canal St), and taking on Portland Street and Peter Street before travelling along Deansgate to finish near the Cathedral.
Get down to St. Anne’s Square, Exchange Square and Cathedral Gardens from 12 noon to 6pm and celebrate 10 amazing years of this special Manchester Day with special music, dance and performance from worldwide communities and to taste the delicious international flavours of food and drink on offer.
Food, Drink and other cool stuff!
The Manchester Food and Drink Festival has curated a fantastic line up of street food heroes, from tapas and Chinese dumplings, to gourmet burgers and fish and chips, churros, bubble waffles with plenty of ice cream and plenty more! The bars will also serve a selection of ales from the best Manchester breweries alongside delicious fizz, ciders, wines and soft drinks.
As well as this there will be “Creation Stations” around the city ahead of the event where people will have the chance to make their own party hat, to be worn during the Manchester Day celebrations on 23 June.
Make sure you go and check it out!
