HOUSTON, TEXAS, Wednesday, July 20th, 2016–
Zine Fest Houston is excited to announce its partnership with Lawndale Art Center for ZFH 2016: Year of the Ama-Zines! This year the fest will take place on Saturday, November 19th at Lawndale Art Center (4912 Main St, Houston, TX 77002). Registration for Zine Fest vendors will open on August 19th.
But, why are we moving?! Because of the growing popularity and scale of Zine Fest Houston and to accommodate growing crowds and accessibility needs, the festival is moving to a larger venue for 2016: Lawndale Art Center. This move will provide a more comfortable fest experience for both attendees and vendors. In addition to a physically larger space, Lawndale also provides close proximity to public transit and good parking availability. Although we are changing locations this year, Zine Fest Houston would like to thank The Printing Museum for its past collaboration and cooperation, and we look forward to continuing a fruitful relationship with the museum and its staff in the years to come.
Zine Fest Houston is a local volunteer-based organization and annual one day festival dedicated to promoting zines, mini-comics, and other forms of small press, alternative, underground DIY media and art. With 72 vendors and over 1,000 attendees in 2015, the fest continues to grow apace. Since 2013 fest organizers have been diligent in seeking out, collaborating on, and creating fresh year-round programming in the form of workshops with organizations such as Art League Houston, The Houston Center for Photography, and Writespace Houston, pop-up tabling events, and unique zine and creator driven events like Comix Gauntlet, and the annual ZFH compilation release.
