Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale (worth the trip!)
Sept. 13-15

Friendship is the gold of childhood. Other things in life are imposed—school, bedtime, what’s for dinner—but friends are something kids choose for themselves. This month, they can join special friends Elmo, Abby, and Grover to learn about the universal joys of friendship at Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend. Kids will enjoy fun adventures that include dancing, sharing cookies, and more.

Kew Gardens Cinemas Park, Kew Gardens
Sept. 15

Meet a group of committed young entrepreneurs at the fourth annual Kids for Kids Flea Market. This isn’t your typical flea market—there will be selling tables, new and gently used merchandise, and bargaining (of course!), but the children (ages 4-13) will be “in charge” of their tables and their parents will be “the assistants.” The children will be selling toys, games, books, and clothes to benefit charities of their choice, and many tables will feature fun activities such as face painting, arts and crafts, and storytelling.

Queens County Farm Museum, Floral Park
Sept. 15

The love of custom motorcycles began long before the popular reality series American Choppers. In fact, antique bike clubs first formed back in the early 50s. Families can escape from the modern world to a simpler, more relaxing time at the 33rd annual Antique Motorcycle Show. See one-of-a-kind models like The Indian Runner, then enjoy a historic house tour, musical entertainment, and more.
