Dragon Boat Festival, or the Dumpling Festival, is a traditional Chinese holiday with apocryphal origins dating back to China’s Warring States era. In Singapore, the festival is observed unofficially by the Chinese community and remains synonymous with the pulsating dragon boat drumbeats and fragrant rice dumplings available in a plethora of fillings.

This year, the Dragon Boat Festival falls on Thursday, 25 June. To get the best bang for the buck when buying rice dumplings (bak chang), consider participating in group buys. Some businesses provide free delivery to one address when you spend a certain amount. Unless, of course, you plan on eating rice dumplings continuously for days, jio your neighbours/friends so that you can enjoy the free delivery service!
