Navy Pier Announces Free Fall Programming Schedule

CHICAGO, Sept. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Navy Pier, Chicago's iconic lakefront destination, is packing in the fall fun with a full roster of free public programs from September through November, including outdoor movies, live music, extended fireworks and more. Thanks to philanthropic support and backing of the nonprofit organization's mission, Navy Pier was able to add several new programs to this year's fall programming schedule, allowing the institution to deliver on its commitment to providing the Chicagoland community and guests access to free, year-round arts and cultural programs.

The fall programming season will kick off with

Moonlight Movies , a weekly outdoor movie series held every Wednesday in September, starting September 8 with a "Back to School" theme. Films on the schedule include School of Rock, Election, Weird Science and High School Musical.

Chi-Soul Fest is back on Friday, September 10 and Saturday, September 11 to present guests with two days of classic and modern soul music along the lakefront at the Navy Pier Beer Garden and Polk Bros Park Performance Lawns. The unforgettable fall music festival will celebrate one of Chicago's deep-rooted genres and will include performances from incredible local soul staples and rising stars like The Corner Series featuring Oliv Blu and Nola Ade with house band LeftJones, Danielle Juhre, Cole DeGenova, Tamarie T. and Thee Elektra Company and more.

For the first time, Navy Pier will continue to light up the night sky after Labor Day weekend with two special

Fall Fireworks shows on Saturday, September 11 and Saturday, September 18. Both shows will be held at 9:30 p.m. and will be visible from across the Pier.

Chicago Shakespeare Theater will host a free outdoor screening event of Othello: The Remix, filmed at Shakespeare's Globe as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, on Tuesday, September 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lake Stage in Polk Bros Park.

After making a successful debut this summer,

Skyline Sessions will be back to entertain guests along the South Dock every Friday and Sunday in October. Featuring solo artists and/or small ensemble performances, this program serves as a soothing way to kick off or end a fall weekend, while enjoying unparalleled views of Chicago's iconic skyline.

Pier Pumpkin Lights makes its return this October as Navy Pier once again transforms into an experiential fall spectacle with more than a thousand pumpkins stacked in elaborate and photo-worthy displays. Guests are welcome to explore this popular pumpkin pop-up experience, while enjoying Pier-wide deals and other Halloween festivities throughout the month.

The fall lineup will conclude with

Sequence Ch!cago , presented by the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation. This annual fall music and arts series celebrates the city's vibrant arts and cultural scene over nine Saturdays in October and November. Festivities include performances from Chicago's most talented musicians, handcrafted works by local artisans and more in the Fifth Third Bank Family Pavilion.

Navy Pier will also host

Halloween Family Fun Days on Saturdays in October (starting October 9 through October 30). Weekend activities will include costume contests, scavenger hunts, Halloween-themed movie viewings, trivia contests and more. The grand finale of Navy Pier's Halloween extravaganza will be held on Saturday, October 30 and will feature on-site trick-or-treating, family and dog-friendly costume contests plus arts and crafts stations for kids of all ages to enjoy.
