Elmo’s Springtacular begins Saturday, April 13, and runs uniquely-themed events each weekend through Sunday, June 16, including three all-new events for 2024 and the re-opening of the Sunny Day Carousel, Sesame Place’s most popular attraction. 

The events, included in park admission, bring an exciting lineup of meet & greets, music, magic, pirate adventures and fireworks to Sesame Place.
