We’re teaming up with Morris Animal Refuge to host an outdoor family-friendly fall fest, featuring a pet costume contest, photo opportunities, treats for two-legged and four-legged attendees, prizes, music, and more. Join us Saturday, October 24 from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM on our 5th Street patio for HOWL-O-WEEN.

Tickets are $10 and include pet entry into the contest, plus one photo of pets in their Howl-o-ween best. For those unable to attend the event but would still like to participate, there are virtual tickets available as well. All proceeds from costume contest ticket sales will benefit The Morris Animal Refuge. The refuge will be on-site to answer any questions and sell refuge merchandise for an additional donation.

After all of the pets have shown off their costumes in person and virtually, a panel of esteemed judges will decide the winning pets for each category: Best Overall, Best Philly “Jawn” and Best Team Costume (can be two pets or owner/pet, etc.) Winners in each category will receive a prize and trophy.

Other fun features include a pop-up bar outside with a bevy of beverages from Freebyrd Chicken, and sustainably crafted goodies for pets from Piggyback Treats Company. Additionally, there will be a silent auction benefitting Morris Animal Refuge with treats for owners and their furry friends, including a dog gift basket from The Bourse and a Holiday Light Tour Private Party from Founding Footsteps.

Grab your tickets here! 

Masks are required at all times. Hand sanitizer and additional cleaning materials will be supplied for guests’ convenience and safety.

This is an outdoor-only event. Pets are not permitted inside the food hall.
