Museum at Eldridge Street
12 Eldridge Street
Celebrate the diverse ethnic communities of the Museum’s Lower East Side/Chinatown neighborhood. This block party, which began as a celebration of Jewish and Chinese art, culture and community, has become our signature event with thousands of people joining us every year. By popular demand, the Museum has expanded the festival to also showcase the contributions of the neighborhood’s Puerto Rican community.
What to expect? Lots of fun, including klezmer, cantorial, Peking opera, bomba and plena music; Yiddish, Mandarin and Spanish lessons; Hebrew and Chinese scribal art, yarmulke making, Chinese and Puerto Rican mask making; games of Mah Jongg; community arts and crafts; and, of course, kosher egg rolls, egg creams, empanadas and other tasty traditional foods!
