Celebrating its fifth season, Lucky Dumpling Market has returned to Elder Park bringing a vibrant atmosphere and sensory indulgence.

As a part of the annual OzAsia Festival, one of the state’s favourite entertainment and food hub, the Lucky Dumpling Market, has returned to Elder Park. It brings with it its vibrant atmosphere and a chance for South Australians to indulge their senses.

The market brings with it the enticing sounds, smells and flavours that transport you to the bustling street markets of Asia. Our Glam team popped by on opening night and we’ve got pics to show the totally new look.

The open air market is bordered by 22 food vendor stalls. The big stage backs against the Torrens River creating the ultimate view looking out onto the Adelaide Oval and bridge. The centre of the market is filled with loads of seating for you to sit and enjoy the bustling atmosphere.

Serving a delicious variety of BBQ, stir fries, noodles, bao buns and of course mouth-watering dumplings, Lucky Dumpling Market is the perfect place for a meal and a drink between OzAsia performances with family and friends.

Taste the flavours of Asia with some of Adelaide’s most delicious food vendors cooking up authentic cuisine, spectacular desserts, bubble tea, and Japanese sake with premium South Australian wines and beer. Chow down on the likes of GANG GANG and Fire by Soi 38, while enjoying an ever-popular mochi donuts from Shibui.

As visitors eat and drink their way around Asia, there’s a full program of free live entertainment to be enjoyed. Across the opening weekend, there will be DJ sets and dancing performances with acts such as Kuya James, Fusion Beats Dance and Aaron Duff from Chinese Electronic Music Project.

Presented by the team behind Adelaide Fringe hub Gluttony, the Lucky Dumpling Market has returned to the Adelaide Riverbank precinct each Spring since and was one of South Australia’s first food festivals since the pandemic hit in 2020.

OzAsia Festival, Australia’s leading contemporary arts festival engaging with Asia, will present a program of ticketed events, after a short hiatus from physical events in 2020 due to COVID-19.

The market will open Tuesday to Friday from 4:30pm until late, and from midday over the weekend.

The Lucky Dumpling Market will run until November 7 at Elder Park along the River Torrens. The market is closed Mondays.
