Tasting Servings depend on the size of the dumpling. For example, your serving would be one samoasa from Hema's Kitchen, but might be 3 raviolis from Perfect Pasta, Inc. depending on the size. If you want to try ALL the dumplings, we recommend coming with friends and sharing tastings!
World Dumpling Fest is the opening celebration to a larger effort called Inherit Chicago. Inherit Chicago is an intercultural citywide festival put on by the city's cultural heritage museums and cultural centers, organizations such as the Chinese American Museum of Chicago, South Side Community Art Center, Swedish American Museum and National Museum of Puerto Rican Art & Culture. Over 30 cultural heritage organizations are coming together for this initiative, in an effort to promote culture on a community-based level, with first-voice perspectives. The producing organization, Chicago Cultural Alliance, is the coalition that brings these organizations together. Ticket sales from World Dumpling Fest go to make the larger festival possible.
The Chicago Cultural Alliance is a 501©3 non-profit in the state of Illinois with a mission to support, connect and promote centers of cultural heritage for a more inclusive and culturally vibrant Chicago. We hope that Inherit Chicago offers Chicagoans a chance to explore more about their own roots, and a chance to learn more about others. The funds from World Dumpling Fest go to support this cause, and our mission to support our membership of 36 cultural heritage centers.
