Schlafly Art Outside Festival

**New Date: With our community in mind we have decided to reschedule Art Outside to September 4-6, 2020.

Like beer, art brings people together. That’s why we established Schlafly’s Art Outside Festival back in 2004. Hosted at the Bottleworks location in Maplewood, we aim to raise awareness and appreciation of art and music created in our very own community.

 We feature artists you’ve never heard of and deliver a family-friendly experience you won’t find anywhere else. Get closer to 15,000 of your neighbors, and get to know art without pretense.

Schlafly Bottleworks - Maplewood

Friday, September 4: 5pm-10pm

Saturday, September 5: 11am-10pm

Sunday, September 6: 11am-4pm

No tickets required. This is a free event for all to enjoy!

We'll have 3 bars on the festival grounds to quench your thirst. Expect styles like our Raspberry Hefeweizen, White Lager, IPA, Pale Ale and more.

Limited food will be available for purchase on the festival grounds, as well as our full menu available inside the Bottleworks brewpub.

Nope! Art Outside is a family friendly event, so bring the kids and enjoy some art. Of course, it is 21+ to drink.

We are thrilled to have the below groups hosting booths for kiddos to enjoy during the festival. Check back closer for more info on each groups' art activity!

  • Artists First
    • $10 - Up-cycle old glass lamp covers by decorating them into repurposed indoor/outdoor planters.
    • $5 - Make a mandala! Repurposed, plastic circles designed and decorated with sharpies, stickers, and paint pens.
  • Yucandu
    • $20 - Create your own 3D painting where warm colors pop, and cool colors go back. 3D glasses included!
  • Krueger Pottery
    • Let the kids try their hand at a pottery wheel with assistance from Krueger staff. Free to try!

Well-behaved pups are definitely welcomed.

Since Art Outside takes place on our main parking lot, there will not be immediate parking available. There are several public lots nearby, as well as street parking - but they will fill quickly. We encourage public transportation, cabs, Uber or biking.

Applications for the 2020 fair will open November 1, 2019 and remain open until January 31, 2020.

Please visit this link, read carefully, and apply away. Cheers!
