The Museum at Eldridge Street is celebrating three of the cultures that call the Lower East Side home at their Egg Rolls, Egg Creams and Empanadas Festival.
The annual street fair, which historically honored the neighborhood’s Jewish and Chinese residents, has added Puerto Rican culture for the first time this year.
Visitors can expect food, music, and cultures representing the three groups such as kosher egg creams, egg rolls, and empanadas, klezmer alongside Chinese opera and salsa music, and folk crafts representing all three communities.
Formerly the Eldridge Street Synagogue, the building was restored in 2007 and renamed The Museum at Eldridge Street.
If your Father’s Day plans are still up in the air, you can bring the whole family.
