Schlafly Art Outside Festival

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.

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!

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

Well-behaved doggos on leashes are allowed. Please keep in mind this event takes place on our parking lot with large crowds.

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.

Please be mindful and considerate of our neighbors when deciding where to park.

The safety of our customers, artists and employees is top priority. Please check back for information regarding any safety requirements for the 2021 event.

Due to not being able to host our normal art fair in 2020, we have invited our already accepted artists to participate at the 2021 event.

Applications for the 2022 fair will open November 1, 2021 and remain open until January 31, 2022.
