    “”The Egg Rolls, Egg Creams and Empanadas Festival is the Museum at Eldridge Street’s signature event. Started in 2000, the festival is a celebration of the diverse cultures that make up our Lower East Side/Chinatown community. Along with neighborhood partners, the festival celebrates the folklife of Eastern European Jewish, Chinese, and Puerto Rican communities in this corner of New York City through music, dance, crafts, ritual practices, foodways, and other creative expressions. Our festival is a place of immersive learning, providing a meaningful appreciation of difference and shared identity. We aim to foster cross-cultural communication as we honor the spirit of this ever-changing neighborhood and open a dialogue about the immigrant experience in New York City today.””
