Zine Fest Houston 2018


Zine Fest Houston (ZFH)  is a local volunteer-run organization and annual, all-ages festival dedicated to promoting zines (self-published magazines), mini-comics, and other forms of small press, alternative, and underground DIY media and art. Admission is always free and low cost table space is made available for creators, writers, and artists involved in the creation, publication, distribution, or promotion of alternative DIY media. ZFH is the sole event in Houston that specifically provides a platform for emerging and established regional and national zine makers in the DIY community to exchange new work and create meaningful relationships that lead to productive collaboration.

This year’s programming includes lectures on healthcare options for freelancers/artists and the history of wrestling, and workshops on teen and youth zine making and DIY animation. Fresh Arts' Cultured Cocktails will donate a portion of the proceeds from all drink sales to support ZFH 2018's launch of the spb grant during the 5pm - 8pm happy hour on Thursday, August 23, at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar. ZFH will also collaborate with local comedy wrestling organization Doomsday Wrestling on a make-your-own wrestler zine making workshop for their September performance to celebrate Zine Fest Houston 2018's wrestling theme.
