“Dumpling Down” Lunar New Year Food Festival | 2020

Get down on delicious dumplings, bottomless kumquat mimosas, and Chinese-themed beers at the biggest Lunar New Year food festival in San Francisco — Dumpling Down.

Vendors from all over the Bay Area will be steaming, frying, baking, and saucing authentic Chinese dim sum classics like shumai, bao buns, har gao, and xiao lung bao — each filled with traditional delights like shrimp, pork, cabbage, and chives.

Once you’ve dumpling’d to your heart’s delight, sink your chopsticks into other Chinese treats. Jian bing, fried chicken, garlic noodles, sesame balls, boba, egg tarts, and Taiwanese-style rolled ice cream will also dot the menus of all your favorite Asian food trucks. Then get down to the beats with local live entertainment by Bay Area non-profit Kollaboration SF Bay Area.

Celebrate the new year and dive into a mountain of delicious dumplings with us.
