The San Francisco Zine Fest is a free, annual celebration of small-press publishing, from zines and comics to art books and beyond. The SF 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 to first time self-publishers and creators. Writers, artists, cartoonists, crafters, illustrators, printmakers and all manner of artists use the SF Zine Fest as a unique venue to sell, trade, and otherwise share their work with an ever-growing audience.
SFZF 2013 is FREE and open to the public! Over 140 small-press and DIY creators will be selling, trading, and sharing their work with the public at large.
