Hot on the heels of the 2019 OzAsia Program announcement comes the joyous news that the popular Lucky Dumpling Market will be returning this year!
While it’s not a market dedicated entirely to the world’s best food (you better believe I’m talking about dumplings), it’s a lively hub along the gorgeous River Torrens boasting flavours and vibes that will transport you to the street markets of Asia.
If you’ve ever wanted to eat your way around Asia without ever leaving Adelaide, now is your chance to get a taste of sizzling Asian inspired BBQs, noodles, stir fries, curries and loads of mouthwatering dumplings.
A variety of enticing desserts, Vietnamese iced coffee, bubble tea, Japanese sake, beer and great South Australian wines will ensure that everyone has a good time.
Although this year’s food and drink and market stalls have yet to be announced, we know they’re going to be awesome judging by last year’s line up.
Ensuring things go smoothly, the fab team behind the Adelaide Fringe venue, Gluttony, are organising things – so you know it will be good.
While you’re eating and drinking your way around Asia, groove to some tunes from talented musicians from around the world. Be astonished by upbeat contemporary tunes inspired by retro Asian pop, traditional instruments paired with modern looping techniques, a blend of hip-hop beats, experimental improvisation and traditional Chinese music, Japanese avant-garde rock and more. The full line up can be viewed here.
The markets will be set alongside the beautiful River Torrens, next to Adelaide Festival Centre—so we all know what that means. Dumplings and sunsets! Name a better combo. We’ll wait.
On weekends you can participate in family friendly workshops and activities organised by different community groups—a great way to learn about different cultural activities from across Asia! The Lucky Dumpling Market is the perfect place to dine with family and friends in a casual, festive atmosphere.
The Lucky Dumpling Market launches on Thursday 17th October and runs until Sunday 3rd November and while hours are yet to be confirmed, last year it was open from Tuesday to Friday from 4:30pm till late and noon till late on the weekends (but closed Mondays), so we’ll confirm that as soon as the info is released.
