A new monthly traveling food festival is set to launch in Wythenshawe later this month, bringing some of Greater Manchester’s best street traders to Manchester’s South Quarter.
Featuring local traders, pop-up brew bars, takeaway stalls and a stacked entertainment scene, the new monthly event will come from Manchester’s street food festival favourite, Grub.
Working with Manchester City Council, Grub’s new carnival will bring top local food traders to every corner of the region – appearing in a new Greater Manchester location each month.
The first event will take place outside the old covered market in Wythenshawe Saturday July 23, with street food stalls from non-traditional dumpling purveyors Desert Island Dumplings, burger purveyors Rad Burger and Italian foodie Il Forno.
Other traders confirmed for the first festival include The Neighborhood Coop, Thief Street Grill & Waffle, The Chaat Walas, tiramisu heroes Paradiso Authentic Italian and Marzipan Mcr.
That’s not all either. There will also be a mini food market stocked with goodies from local independent food and drink producers, as well as a well-stocked beer bar showcasing the best summer beers from Manchester breweries.
The Grub Carnival bar will be stacked with craft beer from North West brewers like Vocation Brewery, Squawk Brew Co. Rivington Brew Co and many more, plus the Runaway Brewery team will be there in person to pour and talk of their beers.

Elsewhere there will be a range of cocktails, mocktails, wines and soft drinks to enjoy, a Grub Carnival tent hosting a stage full of live entertainment and DJs, and lawn games fun for kids (and adults).
Grub also reaches out to the Wythenshawe community to collaborate and offer support
through their ‘School Of Grub’ program, a free workshop presented by successful street traders giving practical advice on how to get started in the business.
The best leads from these workshops will then get free mentorship from Grub and a head start on their way to their first street food gig.
Grub also wants to hear from local businesses, residents, artists, musicians and community groups who might want to support or get involved with the event. If that sounds like you, email them using the address [email protected]

“We have high hopes that this event is just the start of great things happening at Wythenshawe.”
