Life Outside Partners

More things to see, try and learn than you could shake a stick at...if you were so inclined.

Partner Activities

Interested in being part of Life Outside 2018? If you are interested in providing dynamic outdoor recreation content all day (classes, demos, try-it activities or competitions), we welcome your partnership! You can promote your own programs or products at a booth where you provide that activity. There is no fee to register as a partner to host an activity unless you are renting equipment or need electrical hookup. Register now using the form below.

Great Rivers Greenway and Terrain Magazine invite retailers, non-profit organizations, outfitters and clubs who are part of the outdoor industry in the St. Louis region to be part of this free festival of the outdoors in Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park. We have various opportunities for you to share what you do best with residents of the region, showcasing your own program or products along the way! Being a Festival Partner means that you are hosting interactive activities that create opportunities for festival attendees to see, try and learn all of the great ways to explore and enjoy the outdoors in the St. Louis region. We encourage you to share information about all that you have to offer, but you must also host engaging activities throughout the day that are engaging, exciting, and fun for festival attendees! If you are selling products, 15% of gross receipts goes to host site St. Louis County Parks. Questions? Call or email Elizabeth Simons (Great Rivers Greenway) at 314.932.4904 or or Zac Metcalf (Terrain Magazine) at 314.561.4701 or
