Join us Saturday, April 21st for San Jose ZineCon 2018!

OVER 75 makers tabling their handmade self-published zines.
visual art, comics, poetry, writing, research, personal, radical - zines can be and are often all of these things. #SJzinecon #SJzinecon2018

San Jose ZineCon is now in its second year, and follows the long, proud tradition of San Jose & South Bay Area zine culture. Learn more here: https://ww2.kqed.org/arts/2017/04/25/inside-san-joses-zine-and-diy-scene/

San Jose ZineCon 2018 is a completely volunteer-run event with free tabling and free admission. Bring a friend, and bring your zines to share and trade, even if you are not tabling. Bring some cash to buy zines and other goods. Bring your favorite drawing or writing utensils if you want to make a zine yourself!

We are dedicated to hosting a safe space and are aware that we all have different abilities, sensitivities, and experiences. San Jose ZineCon 2018 strives to be a space where everyone feels supported. Although as organizers we can not preemptively stop negative behavior, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, racist, ableist and/or other selectively offensive language and actions will not be tolerated.
