Hot on the heels of the 2018 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. There’ll also be lots of premium local wines, craft beers and sake for you to enjoy!
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. The 2017 Lucky Dumpling Market saw the likes of faves like Sookii La La and The Filipino Project… so we’re super keen to see who’s getting on board this year!
The Lucky Dumpling Market will also host entertainment including some of the best local and international bands. Australia’s Gold Fields and Sophie Koh will hit the stage for some local jams, with Malaysia’s Nading Rhapsody and the Philippines’ Joey Ayala representing the international music scene.
These 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 25th October and runs until Sunday 11th November and is open from Tuesday to Friday from 4:30pm till late and noon till late on the weekends (they’ll be closed Mondays).
