Save the date: WXXI's Open House is September 13!

We hope you'll join us Saturday, September 13 at our studios at 280 State Street for a behind-the-scenes look at how our programs are created and meet the people that make it happen. WXXI is hosting its biennial Open House September 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We'll have arts and crafts for the kids, countless PBS Kids characters – including Daniel Tiger and the Berenstain Bears – looking to have their pictures taken, live broadcasts, and all of our studios will be open and lit for you to come visit! You can also meet our on-air hosts and news team, talk with our TV program director, and learn how The Little selects movies. It will be a fun, FREE day, so be sure to mark your calendar.
