Elmo, Cookie Monster and other favorite Sesame Street Characters are headed to the 2018 New York State Fair.

According to New York State Agriculture News, "Sesame Street Live: C is for Celebration" will be performing 10 shows across five days at the Art & Home Center's Empire Theater.

“We are thrilled to have Sesame Street with us as we kick off the 2018 Fair. We know young people, as well as fans of the show who have grown up with it, will have a wonderful time with Grover, Abby and Rosita, and the show’s message of inclusion and diversity is our message, too,” said Acting Fair Director Troy Waffner.

There will be two shows a day starting on Wednesday, Aug. 22 through Sunday, Aug. 26 with shows starting at 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.

Tickets will be available through the fair's online ticket seller, here, for $5. Any tickets not sold online by midnight the day before will be available on a first-come, first served basis at the Art & Home Center offices as cash-only, officials said.

All adults and children, regardless of age, will need a ticket to enter the show.
