Mid-West Zine Fest is a gathering of zine-makers, authors, speakers, musicians and other rad people for the purpose of celebrating zines and zine-culture!

The festival will include interactive events, food, speakers, music and plenty of zines. The festival is open to the public and admission is free.

MidWest Zine Fest 2013 is excited to share space with the annual Books2Prisoners booksale.  Look forward to exciting and maybe new (to you!) books, zines, workshops, and speakers!

Call for tablers/speakers is now closed!  We are so stoked on this year’s fest.  Find out why by visiting the schedule or the list of tablers!
