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 almost 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 year’s edition will highlight Korea in particular

The BC Dumpling Festival has gained immense popularity since its inception, and this year, the addition of the Korean Pavilion promises to elevate the event to new heights,” festival organizers share. “Festival-goers will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in all things Korean, from traditional arts and crafts to captivating performances, and of course, mouthwatering Korean dumplings.”

The plan for the dumpling festival going forward will be to highlight a different country each year, with an aim to foster a deeper appreciation for the many cultures that make up the community.

As for dumpling vendors you can expect this year, Momo Joy, Nina’s Pierogies, Dungan House, House of Yee, and Mr. Siopao, among others, will be participating in the event.

Other food vendors will also be onsite, dishing up both sweet and savoury dishes like Japadog, Mochido, Wak Wak Burger, and Lee’s Donuts.

This year’s Dumpling Festival will also feature a dumpling eating contest and participants will be comprised of prominent members of the community. The winner will be dubbed the “Dumpling Eating Champion.”
