Time Out says

Immerse yourself in the cultural delights of the Jewish, Chinese and Puerto Rican communities of Chinatown and the Lower East Side at this block party. While Peking Opera performers and klezmer bands take the outdoor stage, you can catch free language lessons, master your mah-jongg game and, best of all, learn how to prepare empanadas, Chinese dumplings and kreplachandchallah bread. Endless grub will be available for sale.

This is the most NYC event that I've ever seen and I love it.  When you go, definitely bring cash so you can try an egg cream, a freshly made egg roll, and an empanada.  Maybe it was the freshness or something else altogether, but I don't think I'll ever have a better egg roll in my life. The fact that the Museum at Eldridge Street is open to the public for free is another huge festival highlight - I loved learning how to make challah bread, and then bringing it home to bake later! This is a perfect event for the whole family.
