Time Out says

Devour dumplings and delight in all the doughy goodness at this one-day festival

Note: due to unforeseen circumstances, the Melbourne International Dumpling Festival has been postponed until further notice. We will keep you posted regarding rescheduled dates.

From xiao long bao and ravioli to gyoza, pierogies, momos and matzah balls, it's hard to go wrong with a dumpling in all its delightful doughy goodness. They truly make the perfect lunch, dinner, drunk late-night snack and really anything in between.

After a few years away, Queen Victoria Market is once again playing host to the Melbourne International Dumpling Festival, which aims to showcase dumplings in all their glorious global forms and celebrate multicultural Australia. Alongside the smorgasbord of snacks there will also be plenty of entertainment and performances for all ages to enjoy. 

The event runs from 4-10pm on March 22, and you can register for free entry to the festival now.
