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.

“This festival is a celebration of the diverse community we live in and brings together families, friends, neighbours, community organizations and businesses from different cultures to share food, entertainment and laughter,” the website states.

No word yet on which vendors will be participating, but keep an eye on the event’s Instagram page for more announcements closer to the festival date.
