Jim Henson Day

  • Adele H. Stamp Student Union
Jim Henson working on original Kermit the Frog.

Every year, the University of Maryland campus and the surrounding community celebrate Jim Henson's birthday on September 24th. This fun-filled tradition celebrates the life and legacy of Jim Henson and provides those who were and continue to be inspired by his creations to share their appreciation on his birthday. Henson Day was established in 2018 by the UMD Henson Committee, which includes various campus and local community members, along with support from The Jim Henson Legacy.
