The City of San Gabriel will host its 7th annual Dumpling & Beer Fest featuring Boba on Friday, Oct. 15 from 6–10 p.m. in the historic San Gabriel Mission District at 320 S. Mission Drive.
The Dumpling & Beer Fest is San Gabriel’s local twist on Oktoberfest, featuring dumplings, food booths, food trucks, dessert booths, a craft beer garden, live entertainment and arts and crafts for kids. New this year, the festival will feature local boba cafes.
San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles-area craft breweries will be pouring, including Ogopogo Brewing, Mt. Lowe Brewing, Pacific Plate Brewing Co., 8one8 Brewing, Eagle Rock Brewery, Common Space Brewery, Hi Def Brewery, La Verne Brewing and Golden Road Brewing. Dumplings from a variety of vendors will be provided, ranging from Chinese, Thai, Mexican and American.
Manduyo will make an appearance with a variety of dumplings, and Angel & Mason will create a special event wine cocktail offering. Both vendors will make a permanent appearance at the upcoming Blossom Market Hall, a 13-vendor food hall coming to the San Gabriel Mission District in later this fall.
General admission is free and unlimited beer tasting wristbands are on sale at Eventbrite, with discounted pre-sale tickets available until Friday at 11:59 p.m. Additional information about tickets may be found on the Facebook event page or website.
The city has partnered with the Asian Youth Center and the event will include efforts to raise awareness around the “LA vs Hate” and “Stop Asian Hate” campaigns.
