SF Zine Fest

Thanks for making SFZF2019 an incredible event!


Over 5000 people attended the 18th Annual San Francisco Zine Fest! That’s a thousand more folks than last year. Check out the photos by Amir the Photographer.


SF Zine Fest is once again presenting Kearny Street Workshop’s Book Arts Showcase at APAture 2019.
Get your tickets now!


The book arts showcase is entitled Embody. EMBODY is an exploration of identities, from the intimately personal to the intergenerational and communal. Each perspective shares a different story of what it is to be Asian American. Featuring Anand Vedawala, Kristel Bugayong, Gay Bay Baes, Nica Constante, In Hiatus Studios, Treasure Nguyen, Sourmouth Sweetheart, Kimberly Requesto, Niki Waters, Angela Roberts, and Helene Park.

APAture is Kearny Street Workshop’s annual multidisciplinary arts festival celebrating emerging Asian and Pacific American (APA) artists of the San Francisco Bay Area. For 20 years, APAture has been a site of dialogue, collaboration, and political action between artists and community members around contemporary issues affecting the Asian and Pacific Islander community.


Monthly Zine Club @ Oakland Main Library
Hi, we're excited to announce our first ever zine club at Oakland Public Library. Starting in April, every third Thursday of the month, from 6-8pm, SFZF will have a zine club at Oakland Main Library.

NEXT MEETING on September 19!
We'll have some supplies, but you're welcome to bring your own.

It’s just a space for folks to gather and make zines and learn new ways to make zines. Basically, it’s a club to build community and work on art we wouldn’t if we were sitting at home, being tempted by chores, Netflix or a cat or four. RSVP
