Momo Fest Sydney — POSTPONED
A dedicated Nepalese dumpling festival.
December 17, 2019
UPDATE: MARCH 16, 2020 — Organisers have announced that Momo Fest has been postponed until further notice "due to uncertainty created by coronavirus outbreak around the world". New dates will be announced in the future — we'll update you when they come to hand.
To find out more about the status of COVID-19 in Australia and how to protect yourself, head to the Australian Government Department of Health's website.
The dazzling sights and intoxicating aromas of Nepal are coming to Sydney, with Melbourne's Momo Fest making the jump up north for the first time. On Saturday, April 18, Momo Fest will celebrate Nepalese culture, Nepalese music and — perhaps most importantly — Nepalese food.
Running from midday–10pm, the event will feature more than 30 different varieties of momo (that is, Nepalese dumplings), with momo competitions also popping up. Just what kinds of momo you'll be eating hasn't yet been revealed, but past Melbourne fests have featured goat varieties and even brunch versions.
Also on the bill: live music, including bands, DJs, roving performers and multicultural performances; workshops, in case you want to learn more; and roving artists.
Entry into the festival will be free — but you'll want to have some cash handy so that you eat your way through all the momos you can handle.
