Zine Fest Houston Today @ Caroline Collective

posted by Free Press Houston @ 11:18 AM


Today is the Annual Zine Fest Houston hosted by our buddy Shane Boyle. Despite the name, the Zine Fest has evolved into a hodge podge of DIY workshops, independent media publishing, exhibits, and of course local zines. Here how they describe themselves/info:

"Zine Fest Houston is an event dedicated to promoting zines, minicomics and other forms of small press, alternative, underground and diy media & art.

It is also a grassroots attempt to build the local zine, diy and alternative media scenes and form networks with media creators in other areas.

ADMISSION IS ALWAYS FREE and low cost table space is available for zinesters, writers, artists, distros and other individuals and groups involved in the creation, publication distribution or promotion of alternative media and diy.

The festival is a new and different experience every time, offering a diverse new crop of zines and other media projects every year (including many never before seen anywhere else) and other unique sights (such as a live chicken manning one of the exhibitor tables during our first festival)."

Shit starts at 2PM at 4820 Caroline
