Last year, BC’s very first Dumpling Festival took place at Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park, bringing together dumpling enthusiasts and makers from across the Lower Mainland.

Now, the festival is set to return for its second year.

Presented by The Asian Arts and Culture Society, this year’s event will take place on August 12 and will feature live entertainment, activities, and a huge range of local food and beverage vendors.

The festival will showcase different types of dumplings from all over the world and is a great chance to try all your favourites ā€“ as well as something new ā€“ 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 explains.
