Festivals in Manchester

Festivals. We do them well in Manchester. From live music events to blooming beautiful flower displays throughout the city.

We’ve rounded up some of our festival highlights for 2024, taking in everything from city-wide music festivals to smaller community events and family-friendly fun.

Some festival events are ticketed but many are completely free. Get out and about and enjoy the city this spring and summer.
