Celebrating 19 Years of Egg Rolls and Egg Creams on Eldridge Street
Mah jongg tiles at the ready!
The annual Egg Rolls and Egg Creams Festival is hitting the Lower East Side this weekend. The block party, now in its 19th year, is ready to dish out frothy beverages that are neither egg nor cream, alongside a bunch of activities and food celebrating the unique diversity of the neighborhood. If you’ll recall, a few years ago the Eldridge Street Synagogue (the host) added empanadas to the mix, and with it, a welcomed expansion to celebrate Puerto Rican heritage of the community.
The festival will feature favorites such as “klezmer, cantorial, Peking opera, bomba and plena music; mah jongg; community arts and crafts, and of course kosher egg rolls, egg creams, empanadas and other tasty traditional treats!”
The event is this Sunday (June 16), from 12-4pm outside the Eldridge Street Synagogue (12 Eldridge Street). So, if you need someplace to take dad on Father’s Day…
