Celebrate and Support the St. Louis Arts Community at A Midsummer Night’s Drink

 In Event, Sponsored

Join the Arts and Education Council’s Young Friends of the Arts on Aug. 2 for a summertime rooftop party—with plenty of entertainment but none of the unexpected drama of William Shakespeare’s beloved romantic comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

The rooftop at The Centene Center for the Arts, overlooking beautiful Grand Center, is the setting for this year’s A Midsummer Night’s Drink. The evening features live art creation as well as music from DJ Makeda Kravitz, a familiar face behind the board at dance celebrations like Afrosexycool and First Friday DJ Spin. Food and drink are provided by St. Louis favorites 4 Hands Brewing Co., 1220 Spirits, Pastaria, Pi Pizzeria, Whitebox Catering and more.

Don’t forget to bring a few extra $5 bills for raffle tickets to win items like a stay in an Angad Arts Hotel suite, Cardinals tickets, a custom-made outfit by Tom James Company, a styling package from Dominic Michael Salon and more.

Proceeds benefit the Arts and Education Council, whose grants and programs keep art happening for 1.6 million adults and children across the bi-state region each year.

A Midsummer Night’s Drink happens Aug. 2 from 7-10 p.m. at the Centene Center for the Arts, 3547 Olive St., in Grand Center. Tickets can be purchased online for $40. Sponsors include Capes Sokol, HOK, Regions Bank, St. Louis Public Radio, 4 Hands Brewing Co., 1220 Spirits and ALIVE’s Guided.
