On 31 August, the local government of the city of Manchester is organising the 2nd ever Festival of Manchester. The aim of the event is to present everything about the city which makes it such a fantastic place to live, work and play in. The Festival of Manchester will take over Platt Fields Park with tons of different forms of entertainment, activities, sporting competitions, food stalls and tons of other ways to celebrate the city.

The local government is keen on making it clear that this is a festival for the citizens and by the citizens. So it invites local communities, groups and organisations to take part in the whole event and represent the diversity of which Manchester is proud. Citizens are invited to host activities, workshops and in general contribute to the overall feel-good spirit of the event.

For those simply attending the event, here’s what’s in store for you -music from all around the world, thanks to the vibrant and diverse communities living in Manchester, food from local producers, who have set up numerous food stalls, sporting activities and demonstrations – and finally everyone will be able to try their hand at different art workshops, led by local experts.
