Dear Team Richmond, 

As the date of the RBC Dumpling Tasting Soirée draws near, we are delighted to extend a warm invitation for you to take part in an evening you won’t forget.

The Soirée is a collaboration with the Asian Arts & Culture Society and the BC Dumpling Festival, and will take place at the BCIT Aerospace Building on Saturday, March 2nd from 6pm-10pm.

It promises to be a celebration of cultural diversity, offering a rich assortment of dumplings from various backgrounds, along with a diverse lineup of esteemed dumpling vendors. Additionally, guests can partake in a lively dumpling competition, indulge in curated alcohol pairings, participate in an auction, capture memories at the photo station, and much more.

For those traveling from out of town or those who want to enjoy a stay-cation here in our destination, we’ve partnered with three exceptional establishments to offer amazing hotel deals: Radisson Vancouver Airport Hotel, Sandman Signature Vancouver Airport Hotel, and Sandman Hotel Vancouver Airport.
