Egg Rolls, Egg Creams & Empanadas
June 16 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
On Sunday, June 16th from noon to 4 pm, the Museum at Eldridge Street will host its 19th annual Egg Rolls, Egg Creams & Empanadas Festival, a block party celebrating the diverse ethnic communities of the Lower East Side. The Museum’s annual multicultural event began almost two decades ago as a celebration of Jewish and Chinese culture in the neighborhood. Since its inception, it has expanded to include the tastes, traditions, sights, and sounds of the area’s Puerto Rican community as well.
Enjoy kreplach, dumpling and empanada making demonstrations; Chinese opera, klezmer and salsa and plena music; Yiddish, Mandarin and Spanish lessons; Hebrew and Chinese scribal art, Puerto Rican mask making, tea ceremonies, mah jongg and true to the festival’s name, egg rolls, classic New York–style egg creams and empanadas will be in abundance.
