Egg Rolls, Egg Creams and Empanadas Festival
June 18 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Celebrate the diverse ethnic communities of the Museum’s Lower East Side/Chinatown neighborhood. This block party, which began as a celebration of Jewish and Chinese culture, has become the Museum at Eldridge Street’s signature event with thousands of people joining us every year. By popular demand we have expanded the festival to also showcase the contributions of the neighborhood’s Puerto Rican community. What to expect? Lots of fun, including klezmer, cantorial, Chinese opera, Puerto Rican folk music, Hebrew and Chinese scribal arts, yarmulke making, Puerto Rican mask and lace making, mah jongg, and other types of arts and crafts. Kosher egg rolls, egg creams and empanadas will be sold.
