Having just delivered a spectacular show at the NEC, Birmingham. ‘The Halal Food Festival’ returns with over 150+ exhibitors, outdoor street food vendors, an indoor exhibition with Muslim lifestyle stalls and entertainment we are set for a tasty bank holiday weekend with an expected 20,000+ foodies!

Manchester is very well renowned for its dining options and diverse culture. Attracting people from all across the North including areas such as Bolton, Blackburn, Leeds, Bradford and more . We feel this is a great opportunity for a huge sector of the community to be represented.

Our street food vendors are looking to represent from all over the globe including ‘Afrikana’, ‘Redfern Kitchen, ‘Myos Japanese Fusion’, ‘The Dutch Fishmen’, ‘Cleopatra’ from the middle east, artisan hot dogs by ‘Malik Butchers’ and Manchesters very own afro carribean ‘Ritas Reign’.

The main arena will play host to your favourite Halal lifestyle brands ranging from fashion, jewellery, Islamic art, charitable causes plus so much more. Celebrity chefs such as Pulwasha, Mia Dia from The Islam Channel and KanD Man from BBC Asian Network will be hosting live cooking demonstrations. Tiktok sensation ‘Mr Tee’, most probably the best ice cream man in Great Britain is also set to play host.

There will also be an ‘Artisan Market’ hosted by ‘Muslim Instashop Expo’. Expect fine delicacies, home décor, arts and crafts, fashion and beauty. This has been a great platform for small, start-up and Instagram businesses in the midlands at Birmingham’s Monthly Muslim Market.

With Manchester’s harmonious diverse mix of ethnicities, this was a great representation of the great north last year and we are thrilled to be returning this year.

Starting from 11am to 7.00pm each day, be sure to arrive with an empty stomach!

Bilal Khan – Organiser and festival director behind The Halal Food Festival said:

“Being able to host The Halal Food Festival is like a dream come true bringing friends and families together to socialise, eat and celebrate the Halal lifestyle. We encourage all walks of like to join us to learn a little more about our integration into UK. It is also a great opportunity for us to champion Halal businesses, hoping to take them from being small start-ups to leading enterprises in their respected fields.’
