ELMO & COOKIE MONSTER from Sesame Street® in the Meet & Greet Appearance Area!* 

Meet & Greets are free with Paid Admission to the Expo!*
SATURDAY, October 8 & SUNDAY, October 9, 2022

*How do you meet ELMO & COOKIE MONSTER from Sesame Street® at the Expo? It’s simple! Just ask ticket booth staff for a free “Meet & Greet Ticket” for the appearance time you prefer when you enter the expo and present your prepaid admission ticket to be scanned, OR, simply ask for it when you purchase your general admission family pass at the ticket booth when you arrive. The “Meet & Greet” tickets are free, but because ELMO & COOKIE MONSTER® can’t stay in the “Meet & Greet Zone” for several hours in a row (even they need a break to cool off!), they’re available at multiple times throughout the day, on both Saturday (October 8) and Sunday (October 9).  Note: there are limited number of “Meet & Greet Tickets” available for each appearance, and are given out for free, on a first-come, first-served basis. Only your child needs a “Meet & Greet Ticket” – parents do not need a “Meet & Greet Ticket” ticket to enter the “Meet & Greet” line with their child. You can also see them in the “Meet & Greet Zone” when they visit with guests.

ALL OF THE MEET & GREETS ARE FREE WITH PAID ADMISSION TO THE EXPO.
