Just because summer is fading fast in the rearview mirror doesn’t mean all of Philly’s great outdoor bars are packing up for the season. With Oktoberfest, Halloween, and plenty more beautiful days left to enjoy this fall, maany of your favorite summertime haunts will be celebrating accordingly. Morgan’s Pier is embracing the season wholeheartedly by bringing in guest chefs, revamping the menu to feature seasonal dishes and drinks, setting up heat lamps to keep things toasty, and hosting an abundance of fall fun in the form of cornhole competitions, pumpkin carving, and more. Fall Fest at Morgan’s Pier is already underway and ends with a Halloween blowout bash.

Every weekend in October, Morgan’s Pier will welcome a new guest chef to the kitchen.
