It’s Nov. 1, which means it’s officially time to start gearing up for the holidays! Warner Bros. Discovery is going big this year for Elf’s 20th anniversary, which means events, new merch, and more!
The celebration starts next Tuesday, Nov. 7, in the magical land called New York City, where the Empire State Building will light up green and yellow. Warner Bros. Discovery will also host a sweet pop-up cart featuring treats inspired by the elves’ four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. The treats will be free for guests who purchase tickets to the building’s 86th-floor Observatory from 2-5 p.m. that day.
Guests who visit the building’s iconic Fifth Avenue lobby from Nov. 7-Jan. 1 can join Buddy the Elf on his adventures from the North Pole to New York City. The special pop-up display will feature tons of Elf-themed shoppable merch that is a perfect gift to bring home for the holidays. Starting on Nov. 10, guests who visit the building’s 86th-floor Observatory can also pose with a life-size version of Buddy. The Empire State Building will also host Elf screenings on Dec. 3, 10, and 17 on the building’s 80th floor, complete with complimentary candy, snacks, and drinks.
If you can’t make it to NYC this year, you can also watch Elf when it re-releases in theaters or watch it on Max and Hulu. You can also catch CineConcerts’ Elf in Concert, which debuts on Nov. 17 in San Jose, California, before heading to more than 30 cities around the world. The performance features local orchestras performing the movie’s score while the movie is played on a 40-foot screen.
On the merch side of the celebration, Warner Bros. Discovery‘s Elf offerings cover everything from charcuterie boards to pet accessories. The WB Shop is packed with holiday-tastic Elf merch, including apparel, accessories, home goods, and more.
