Merchant City Festival is back for 2021! We'll be returning this summer from Thursday 8th - Sunday 11th July 2021.
The celebrated festival will showcase a long weekend full of entertainment with some extraordinary outdoor performances, arts, circus, dance and more. It will brighten up some of our city's best-loved streets and venues in and around the Merchant City area.
The 2021 festival will be slightly different to previous years to ensure compliance with current Public Health guidelines, but all events will be ticketed and free to attend. We're also inviting retailers and restaurants to apply to our new Get Involved Fund, to join in the festival atmosphere and organise entertainment and cultural activity within or outside their premises.
