THE EXPO

Situated in the Village, this hugely popular community space gives exhibitors the chance to showcase their organisation, spend face-to-face time with visitors, promote goods or services and carry out consultations.

The Expo is ideal for local community groups, public sector organisations and commercial businesses.

MARKETS

The ever-popular market will return again this year, offering a great selection of gifts and memorabilia. With thousands of visitors over the weekend, it's a great opportunity to sell your wares.

We’d love to see traders selling things like sequin jackets, vintage tees, unique jewellery, alternative clothing and accessories, body wear, pet products, and more. The more out there, the better! Anything that customers are able to take home with them is always a winner.

We're also looking for products and memorabilia that people will be able to use straight away, or pop in their pockets! Think cool clothes and festival wear, memorabilia, hats, accessories and more.

If you’re a trader, or you know anyone who may be interested in a market stall at Manchester Pride Festival, be sure to apply or direct traders to this page.
