The last time Welcome to Thornbury held their Dimmy & Dumpling festival, they served up a whopping 20, 000 of these delicious treats. Whether you like them steamed, fried, covered in soy sauce or dipped in chilli, these parcels of joy are taking over the venue for its 5th annual celebration. Check out the festival for one day only, on Saturday July 29, from 12pm to 10pm. That’s lunch and dinner sorted as well as a few afternoon snack bites too!
Dimmy & Dumpling festival
Arrive with an empty belly, and look forward to a classic dim sim (fish and chips shop style), as well as gyoza, Nepalese dumplings and pierogi. Traders so far include the famous South Melbourne Dim Sims, Lil Dumpling Van, Woking Amazing, Chef Calamari and more. And to make sure everyone can join in on the fun, there will be vegan and gluten-free dumplings available to try.
As for drinks, there will be a specially brewed Dimmy & Dumpling festival XPA, with $12 pints available all day.
There’s heaps of space available for walk-ins if you’re feeling spontaneous, but if you’re coming in a group of four or more, it’s best to book ahead. Dogs are welcome to come along too!
