The San Francisco Zine Fest is a free, annual celebration of small-press publishing, from zines and comics to art books and beyond. The Zine Fest serves as a vital showcase of the diversity, creativity, and ongoing exuberance of the small-press movement. Our exhibitors range from established small-press publishing houses including RE/Search Publications, Microcosm, AK Press, Sparkplug Comics, and Tugboat Press to first time self-publishers and creators. Writers, cartoonists, crafters, illustrators, printmakers, and all manner of artists use the SFZF as a unique venue to sell, trade, and otherwise share their work with an ever-growing audience.
This year's SFZF will be the largest yet, with many more exhibitors, along with more workshops, panels, and special events! The Festival takes place on Labor Day Weekend, September 3 + 4, 2011 at the San Francisco County Fair Building, in Golden Gate Park. As always, the Zine Fest is FREE and open to the public! Over 150 small-press and DIY creators will be selling, trading, and otherwise sharing their work with over three thousand attendees.
