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 is a great opportunity to sell your wares.

Markets will be located at both Manchester Pride Live and the Gay Village Party.

Feast is a street food and market place located at the Gay Village Party, a new addition to Manchester Pride Festival. We’ve got enough glitter to stretch to the moon and back, so 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.

For Manchester Pride Live, we’re 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.



With tens of thousands of people attending each day of the Festival, we get a lot of hungry visitors!

We don't just want burgers and fries, we want food from all around the world. We've got a lot of veggies and vegans to feed, so bring along your plant-powered dishes.

Sweet treats are always welcome, be it an ice cream van or a waffle wagon, we want you too.



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.



We love to see businesses getting involved with the Manchester Pride Festival each year, so we've put together this handy brand pack to help you get in to the spirit of the Festival and to show ways in which you can support the charity. You can download the pack HERE.
