Dumpling & Beer Fest

San Gabriel is known for its delicious, authentic Asian cuisine and one of the hottest foods in the city is dumplings. Many of the amazing dumpling spots in San Gabriel have been recognized by restaurant critics and food bloggers including the Los Angeles Times' Jonathan Gold. At the same time, the craft beer scene has taken off in recent years, and beer festivals are a popular weekend activity. The San Gabriel Dumpling & Beer Fest is an annual event that brings those two great loves together.

The festival offers dumpling vendors and craft beer tastings in the city's historic Mission District, making a fun night for the community to come together at our local twist on Oktoberfest. There will also be live entertainment. In 2015, the inaugural festival was a massive success and was the most well attended city event in recent memory.

The second year of the festival was even bigger and better, with improvements made based on lessons learned from the first festival. The area of the festival was expanded and there were double the amount of food and craft beer vendors.

See you next year on Oct. 5, 2017! More details to come.
