Lucky Dumpling Market | Elder Park Adelaide | 21 Oct – 7 Nov 2021

Lucky Dumpling Market 2021 in Adelaide’s Elder Park 

The Lucky Dumpling Market is popping up again in Adelaide’s Elder Park from Thursday 21 October until Sunday 7 November. Taste the flavours of Asia from a range of food stalls offering dumplings, noodles, bao, salads and curry and more.

Returning to Adelaide with the enticing sounds and smells of Asia’s bustling street markets, Lucky Dumpling Market is our favourite place to hang out on the balmy spring evenings throughout OzAsia Festival.   A popular hub for food, bars and entertainment each Spring since 2017, the event is held at Elder Park on the Adelaide Riverbank – a large space allowing for greater physical distancing and a COVID-safe festival experience.

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



Be entertained with free live music from local and interstate artists along with family-friendly workshops and cultural activities showcasing some wonderful local community groups on weekends.
