We’re definitely in the midst of prime outdoor festival season. One of the Lower East Side’s most popular summertime events is just around the corner. The Museum at Eldridge Street will be hosting its annual Egg Rolls, Egg Creams and Empanadas Festival this coming Sunday.
The event is a perfect mashup of Chinese, Jewish and Latino culture in our neighborhood of immigrants. You can tour the historic Eldridge Street Synagogue, take in all sorts of performances (including Chinese opera, klezmer and Puerto Rican bomba music) and, of course, watch egg roll demonstrations and learn how to make a classic egg cream. Just don’t tangle with the ladies playing mah jongg in the center of Eldridge Street.
The festival takes place from noon-4 p.m. on Sunday. More information here.
