Finally an event for the food group so dear to our hearts. Whether you’re a dim sim or a dumpling fan, their popularity as a quick snack, a night outing event, or a hangover cure has risen steadily through the years. There’s so much more to your average fried/steamed snacks though, and Welcome to Thornbury’s annual Dimmy & Dumpling Festival has returned to introduce a steaming hot variety of your favourite goodies.
Known for their revolving line-up of food and beer events, Welcome to Thornbury promises to serve up a fabulous line-up of dim sims and dumplings from all over the world. Have a crack at some Polish dumplings from Pierogi Pierogi, or try some dim sim curry from Curry Up Now—there’s even gluten-free and vegan options available from Woking Amazing so all dietary types are sorted. Other notable names include Dim Sim Kingz, MoMore and Sparrow’s, with even more to be announced shortly.
There’s plenty of beer and wine options to choose from while you take a break from all that salty excellence, along with a show-stopping Lion Dance performance from the CMS Lion Dance Team. As always, your pet pooches are more than welcome.
This festival’s only on for one day running from 12pm until 10pm, so head down to Welcome to Thornbury on Saturday 29 may to get your fill. Entry is free but if your party is larger than 6 people, book your table here.
Ever wondered about the history of the dim sim? Wonder no more.
