Get Ready For Los Angeles To Turn Into Sesame Street This Summer

Elmo, Big Bird, and the rest of the gang are going on a road trip!

The City of Stars will welcome the stars of Sesame Street when they leave their quiet neighboorhood and head to the Sunny SoCal – as well as 10 other cities to be matter-of-fact. The loveable crew is traveling together on a national tour to celebrate their 50th anniversary, starting in NYC with plans to end in our hometown this August! The celebration is three days long, running August 2 through August 4.

Whether you want to revisit your beloved childhood memories or now have little ones of your own, the #ThisIsMyStreet tour will be filled with free park festivals, live performances, and kid-friendly activities. Get ready to go through a giant maze, dig for treasure, and snack on milk-and-cookies! And be sure to arrive camera ready because you never know who you may see – plus, the Sesame Street crew will be looking to capture the reasons why your adorable mini-mes love the city they live in. Aww!

The reason for this trip is to highlight how the iconic show helps kids “grow smart, stronger, and kinder.” There’s no word as to where the three-day festival will be held just yet but check back with us later this Spring.

Season 50 premieres in November with a star-studded primetime special on HBO!
