According to the event website, “The idea for BC Dumpling Festival was sparked during COVID-19 when we saw a rise in anti-Asian hate and crime in our community.”
The festival will showcase different types of dumplings from all over the world and is a great chance to try all your favourites – as well as something new – all in one place.
