The Manchester Flower Festival is back on Friday 24 – Monday 27 May 2024.

From floral installations to outdoor dining, live music and entertainment, you’re in for a bloomin’ amazing long weekend in Manchester city centre. Free and open to all, come along and see Manchester in flowers.

The Manchester Flower Festival is one of the city’s annual, flagship events. Taking place across the late May Bank Holiday weekend, the festival of flowers transforms the city centre with themed decorations and green installations alongside live music, entertainment, alfresco food and drink, talks, demonstrations, processions and workshops.

Now in its seventh year, the urban festival attracts hundreds of thousands of additional visitors to the city centre and launches the summer event season in the city.

But the crown jewel of our festival lies right here in the bustling lower mall of Manchester Arndale with the new theme ‘The Second Summer of Love’ which will run May 24th-27th. Find out more
