PARTY AT MANCHESTER PRIDE FESTIVAL!
Manchester Pride Festival is one of the world's leading celebrations of LGBTQ+ life and is made up of a number of diverse, inclusive and accessible events - some require tickets and many are free to attend.
Events at Manchester Pride Festival fall under 6 key strands:
Arts & Culture
Youth & Family
The Party strand of Manchester Pride Festival includes the Gay Village party and MCR Pride Live.
GAY VILLAGE PARTY
The roots of Manchester Pride and the Festival are firmly in the heart of our world-famous Gay Village. Taking place over all 4 days of the bank holiday weekend, the Gay Village Party is the ultimate street party LGBTQ+ celebration as the sun shines down on our much loved cobbled streets! With community performances in Sackville Gardens, plus markets and parties across The Gay Village’s venues, the Gay Village Party continues to be home to the hub of the festival’s celebrations.
The community is always at the forefront and heart of our programming, and we were delighted to reveal this year’s Gay Village Party line-up - our boldest, queerest, most diverse and inclusive community celebration of LGBTQ+ life yet, featuring some of the best in queer local LGTBQ+ talent.
MCR PRIDE LIVE
Along with the Gay Village Party, MCR Pride Live represents the 'Party' strand of Manchester Pride Festival and features a fantastic, world-class line-up of international talent from stellar LGBTQ+ artists and allies. This year's event saw performances from Yungblud, Gabrielle, Zara Larsson, Annie Mac, The Cocoa Butter Club, Jodie Harsh + SO MANY MORE!
We were thrilled that this year's event took place at First Street, a wonderful city-centre venue not far from Manchester's Gay Village. We enjoyed two full days of bold and fabulous LGTBQ+ celebrations, amazing food & drinks, fairground rides and more.
