The Arizona Bao and Dumpling Festival is returning to Downtown Chandler for its third year.Explore all the different varieties of baos and dumplings from traditional to creative interpretations.
What is a bao? From Food Republic, a bao or known as a steamed bun or baozi is a "complete meal conveniently packed away in a white, warm, soft bun." Or what we like to say, an amazingly delicious experience. Baos are a form of dumplings and the festival will feature various styles from takoyaki to potstickers.
For the third year, we are also bringing a doubleheader with the Arizona Donut and Ice Cream Festival. The Arizona Donut and Ice Cream Festival is the first in AZ, returning after a long hiatus from the pandemic. With one ticket, you can enjoy a variety of bao, dumplings, ice cream, and donuts on both days. Take a bite into a fluffy donut paired with cool, creamy ice cream from different local businesses. Celebrate the diversity of food with us and dare we say, bao and ice cream is perfect together!
For our third year, we will have more local food businesses and menu prices range from $5 - $14 (prices at the higher end are for Asian dishes and bao on average (depending on number in a dish and size) is between $4 - $8). We will also have a curated anime marketplace with local artists. Boba, desserts, and other Asian dishes will be available too
It is recommended to bring cash for food, beverage, and craft purchases.
