Egg Rolls & Egg Creams Festival on Sunday

On Sunday, the Museum at Eldridge Street invites the community to its Egg Rolls & Egg Creams Festival, an annual celebration of the Chinese and Jewish heritage of the Lower East Side.

The event is free and runs from noon to 4 p.m. Expect acrobatics from The Peking Opera, lessons in mah jongg and both Hebrew and Chinese writing, as well as the treats from which the festival takes its name.

Read more about the festival on the museum’s blog, where there’s a short history as well as a recipe for making egg creams at home.
