Time Out says
Celebrate the glory of the dumpling in its many forms—pot stickers, empanadas, pierogi and more—at World Dumpling Fest. The one-day event includes tastings from a wide variety of Chicago restaurants as well as live music, cultural art vendors and dance performances. Hosted by the Chicago Cultural Alliance, the festival is free to attend, but guests will have to pay for pillowy morsels. Hungry? Grab a tasting pack: three tickets for $10 or nine tickets for $25.
