New York is synonymous with diversity and what could define diversity better than a Chinese-Jewish-Puerto Rican food and culture festival?
On June 17 from 12 pm to 4 pm you can immerse yourself in three different cultures in the heart of Lower Manhattan. The Museum at Eldridge Street is hosting it’s annual celebration of the Chinese, Jewish and Puerto Rican populations that have historically made up the neighborhood.
You can expect a whole array of experiences at the festival including outdoor performances of Chinese opera, Chinese folk, and Puerto Rican folk music as well as demonstrations by Hebrew and Chinese scribes, a Puerto Rican mask maker, and other folk artists.
You’ll also have the opportunity to try your hand at traditional cooking like braiding challah bread, rolling dumplings and crafting empanadas. You can also dabble in crafts like mask making and lace making and of course, amazing food options like kosher egg rolls, egg creams and empanadas will be available for purchase all day!
