From pierogis to potstickers and everything in between, the 3rd Annual Tang’s Natural New York City Dumpling Festival has got your dumpling fix covered. At the festival, ticket holders will be able to sample an international selection of dumplings from cultures around the world, including offerings from Italy, China, Malaysia and Poland.

The Festival will also feature the 8th Annual Chef One Dumpling Eating Contest, one of the most exciting eating competitions in New York City. Come and cheer on contenders as they attempt to upset the record of 66 dumplings in two minutes! Attendees will also enjoy live performances and lucky draws throughout the Festival. We invite you to help us commemorate our joint efforts with the Food Bank For New York City in bringing public awareness to the hunger issues facing New York City.
