‘The Halal Food Festival’ returns to Manchester at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre this summer on Saturday, August 19th, and Sunday, August 20th, 2023.
‘The Halal Food Festival’ is back after a sensational performance at the NEC, Birmingham. This time, it promises an even more delightful experience with 150+ exhibitors, street food vendors, indoor Muslim lifestyle stalls, and entertaining activities. Get ready for a scrumptious bank holiday weekend as we anticipate over 20,000 food enthusiasts!
Manchester is famous for its wide range of dining choices and vibrant cultural scene. It draws people from various regions in the North, including Bolton, Blackburn, Leeds, Bradford, and beyond. This presents a valuable chance to ensure broad community representation.
Our street food vendors showcase a diverse range of cuisines from around the world. They include ‘Afrikana’, ‘Redfern Kitchen’, ‘Myos Japanese Fusion’, ‘The Dutch Fishmen’, ‘Cleopatra’ representing the Middle East, artisan hot dogs by ‘Malik Butchers’, and Manchester’s own Afro-Caribbean delight, ‘Ritas Reign’.
The main arena will host a variety of popular Halal lifestyle brands, including fashion, jewellery, Islamic art, charitable causes, and much more. Celebrity chefs like Pulwasha, Mia Dia from The Islam Channel, and KanD Man from BBC Asian Network will conduct live cooking demonstrations. TikTok sensation ‘Mr Tee’, widely regarded as the best ice cream man in Great Britain, will also be hosting.
The ‘Muslim Instashop Expo’ will be hosting an ‘Artisan Market’, featuring a wide range of products such as fine delicacies, home décor, arts and crafts, fashion, and beauty. This monthly Muslim Market in Birmingham’s midlands has proven to be a fantastic platform for small, start-up, and Instagram businesses.
Last year, Manchester showcased its harmonious ethnic diversity, making it a fantastic portrayal of the vibrant north. We are excited to come back this year.
From 11am until 7.00pm daily, make sure to come hungry!
