Sesame Street Road Trip coming to Chicago in June

As Sesame Street gears up for its 50th anniversary this fall, the residents of 123 Sesame Street can be found across the country.


Elmo, Abby and friends will visit Chicago on June 29 as part of a summer-long anniversary road trip that begins in New York City on June 1 and ends in Los Angeles on Aug. 3.


The Museum of Science and Industry will host a free family festival and stage show that includes a giant maze, a treasure dig, photo opportunities, sweepstakes, a cookies-and-milk snack station and more.


Families can RSVP here, but a ticket isn’t necessary and admittance is first-come, first-served.


While in town, the Sesame Street production crew will film characters at local landmarks and produce segments with kids showing what they love about their communities. The new segments will begin airing in November as part of Sesame Street’s 50th season.


“Sesame Street has been educating and supporting children across Illinois since 1969, and we’re excited to welcome them to Illinois in late June,” says Gov. JB Pritzker, in a statement from Sesame Workshop. “Making sure our children get a quality education in their earliest years has been a decades-long passion of mine, and one that I’m excited to champion as governor.”
