UPDATE as of July 28, 2015: The location for this event has been changed from the Red Truck Brewery to the Food Truck Fest located at 215 West 1st Avenue. The site is between the Cambie Street Bridge and the Olympic Village.
Dumpling lovers rejoice! The Golden Dumpling Cook Off and Derby returns on August 9.
A fundraiser for the Chinese Elders Community Kitchen, the festival features restaurants competing to make the best wrapped-and-filled morsels. A dumpling passport ($55 plus service charge) lets you sample each creation, and with 17 restaurants participating, expect to leave stuffed like a dumpling yourself.
This year’s event takes place at Red Truck Brewery (295 East 1st Avenue) and tickets include three 16-ounce Red Truck beers as well as Happy Planet refreshments.
See the Golden Dumpling website for info and tickets.
