Coburg Velodrome is hosting a Nepalese dumpling festival this month (Melbourne)

After hosting their large scale, four-day food truck festival earlier this year, the team behind Coburg Velodrome have announced their next outing: a celebration of the forthcoming Holi festival and Nepalese culture. The cultural event imbued with colour and love will inspire a free dumpling festival on Sunday 26th March, with a packed day featuring over a dozen unique dumpling marquees, live music, Nepalese stage performances, market stalls, food trucks and amusement rides.

Focusing in on different mono styles as well as folding techniques, recipes and flavours, the 12+ dumpling stalls will be offered alongside various food trucks, creating quite the vibrant food scene while the nearby HOLI MOMO main stage hosts live music, headlined by internationally acclaimed Nepalese tradition folk band Kutumba. Also on the music program are experimental soul-pop band Jakubi.

Other entertainment planned for the day include Chinese lion dancers soundtracked by Melbourne band Big Words, the energetic Eastern Seaboard Electric Soul Ensemble delivering Bollywood DJ sets, a Momo Masterchef competition, dumpling wrapping and eating contests and more

Entry to M Festival is by gold coin donation, with all proceeds going to the NRNA Nepalese Charity and Non Resident Nepali Association’s Earthquake Reconstruction Project to build 1000 homes for victims of Nepal Earthquake 2015.
