Taste more than 30 different types of momo at this festival celebrating Nepal
If you’re a fan of all things wrapped in a wonton then listen up: Momo Fest is back in 2018 at the Coburg Velodrome. Over three days crowds will descend on the northside venue for a festival celebrating the squishy Nepalese dumplings, the momo.
The free festival will feature more than 25 momo stalls serving 30 plus varieties of momo. Try a Nepali favourite, the buff (buffalo meat) momo, and there will also be chicken, lamb, beef, pork, seafood, vegetarian and vegan varieties to try.
But wait, there’s mo-more. The Momo Fest will also have two stages of live entertainment with the headliners, naturally, coming from Nepal. Hang around to catch Nepali folk band Kutumba beat their drums or listen out for the bluesy tunes of Mukti and Revival. There will also be performances from local bands as well as Nepali Lahkey dancers and Chinese Lion dancers.
Other highlights of the festival include a momo dinner and movie on Friday, a momo brunch on Sunday and a colourful Holi celebration. You can also donate to the MIT Group Foundation on entry with proceeds going towards the construction of schools and hospitals in Nepal (plus you’ll be entered into a raffle).
The Momo Fest is on from Friday March 23 to Sunday March 25 at Coburg Velodrome.

I went to momo festival yesterday. I bought chicken momo from nepal dining room to take away home. I got home (glenroy) which is couple of kms drive. By the time i got home and started eating those momos they have already gone off. The dumplings were fine but the sauce was off. It was smelly and not edible. Why can't they have proper temperature management and hygiene? The sauce must have been out of freeze for long time. Would you eat yourself that food if you have bought for yourself? We pay the price so we deserve the quality. This is not really up to the australian food safety standard at all. Disappionted.....
