About this Event

The Sparkle Weekend is a festival-style family event, running from Friday 12th until Sunday 14th July in Sackville Gardens, Manchester.

Our event is aimed at everyone who identifies as trans, non binary and gender variant, and their friends, families and allies. All ages are welcome!

We want to bring together our gender variant community, to bring together joy, hope and celebration for the second weekend in July. The Sparkle Weekend has been a cornerstone of the LGBTQIA+ Community here in Manchester for the past 19 years. You can be sure of acceptance, celebration and a very warm welcome by our team, volunteers and other attendees.

We aren’t just a community celebration, we are a family.
