Sesame Street 50 Years and Counting

  • By WITF Staff


We apologize, but we are at capacity. We hope to see you at our next free event, Ready, Set, Explore! with Buddy from Dinosaur Train on October 19.

What’s your favorite Sesame Street memory from the past 50 years?

Let’s make a new Sesame Street memory together. Join us Saturday, September 28 from 9am to 2pm at the WITF Public Media Center to celebrate Sesame Street 50 Years and Counting.

This FREE, fun family event offers many great photo opportunities and activities like designing your own rubber ducky, counting to 50 (Ah! Ah! Aaah!) and making your very own Letter of the Day.

Enter a FREE raffle to win 4 tickets to Sesame Place!

Capital Area Transit (CAT) and WITF are joining forces to provide free transportation from the downtown Harrisburg Transfer Center at Second and Market streets, to the WITF Public Media Center for the celebration.

All children and parents are welcome to connect to the Harrisburg Transfer Center and ride free via Route 20 to the WITF Public Media Center. All buses in the CAT service system connect to the downtown Transfer Center. Families wishing to attend from any stop in Cumberland and Dauphin Counties should schedule a trip to the Transfer Center to connect with Route 20, then ride free from downtown to WITF and back again. The Route 20 buses that will stop at WITF will start at Market Street Transfer Center at 8:15 a.m. and will run every 35 minutes. The last pickup from WITF is scheduled for 2:40 p.m.

There will also be a regular Route 20 bus, following its normal schedule from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., that does not stop at WITF. Riders are encouraged to ask their driver if that bus will take them to Sesame Street 50 Years and Counting. All passengers on Route 20, no matter their destination, will ride for free.
