As well as rare and desirable trainers up for sale, the event brings together a day of entertainment for trainer fanatics.

You can expect competitions, panel discussions, live performances, and local DJs.


There’ll be street food stalls on site, as well as a bar run by Manchester-based Rockstar Spirits.

It’s not just sneakers either – clothing brands from Manchester and London will make appearances at next year’s Crepe City.


Crepe City was originally launched in London over a decade ago; with co-founder Ronal Raichura quitting his job as a lawyer to set up an event for sneaker fans to swap, sell and buy.

The 2022 Manchester edition of the festival will run from 12pm – 6pm on Sunday March 13 and is expected to attract a huge audience.
