Festival of Manchester 2019

31 August at Platt Fields Park

Participants form

On Saturday 31 August Platt Fields Park will host the second Festival of Manchester – a celebration of all that’s great about our city.  The first Festival of Manchester took place in 2018 and was a massive success attracting over 10,000 people and involving over 120 community groups and organisations and over 750 participants.

Once again the beautiful lakeside area of Platt Fields Park will be full of small scale performances and activities representative of Manchester’s diverse communities alongside mouthwatering food and drink. 
We are looking for community groups and organisations to take part in the festival as performers or activity/workshop leaders. (Please feel free to suggest any other ideas you might have that will help make the Festival of Manchester a great event).

We can offer you out of pocket expenses, refreshments, promotion of your group via social media and our media partners, technical support and a great opportunity to participate in an amazing day!

This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your group!
