It’s that time of year again! The tables have sold out, the organizers are busy planning it all out and we are looking for volunteers to hold it down at the San Francisco Zine Fest 2014!

Over the weekend of August 30 and 31st at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco Zine Fest will be bringing you all the zinesters, workshops and panels you can handle and we need your help. If you love a bit of organization, chatting to people and making things run smoothly then we would love to hear from you! Our invaluable volunteers help visitors and vendors at our info booth, run our zine library, help set up and break down the Zine Fest, as well as help us to promote all the amazing events happening over that weekend, and much much more!

If you would like to come and hang out with a community of people who love zines, drawing, making, DIY and generally being awesome, then email us through the contact page with the subject line ‘Volunteer.’  We will be hosting two volunteer orientations in July where you can meet the SFZF crew and fellow volunteers, as well as hear about all the perks of being a SFZF volunteer, so stay tuned for more details.

We're thrilled to announce that exhibitor registration has opened for SF Zine Fest 2014! The show will be Labor Day weekend, August 30th and August 31st at the SF County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park.  

If you are interested in registering as an exhibitor, please visit the Registration page. There you will find further instructions for submitting your exhibitor application and paying your registration fees. Both items must be completed in order to reserve a table.

We encourage all exhibitors to register early! A few reasons why include….

1. After July 15th, 2014 the price for tables goes up for late registrants

2. Exhibitor registration closes on August 1st, 2014. 

3. Exhibitor spots are confirmed as they come in, and we are expecting another year full of artists and vendors. If all tables are reserved before the exhibitor registration deadline of August 1st, 2014 then additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list and contacted if a spot becomes available.  

4. Any special requests will be honored (if possible) in the order received.  So if you need any special arrangements (e.g. power outlets, desire to be near/far from a wall, etc.) it’s a smart move to let us know ahead of time.

Once we receive your application and payment you will receive a confirmation message.

Thank you all for your interest. Keep checking our website for updates about the show, and great info on the zine + DIY community. See ya at the fest!
