The Stockton Zine Fest will be an all ages, free, and open to the public showcase of DIY/alternative press zines as well as other artwork for display, trade, or purchase on Saturday, October 13th, 2018 from 2pm-7pm. It will feature 15-20 participants, live music, and video projections. The event will occur during Stockton Arts Week and is partially funded by Stockton Arts Commission and the California Arts Council.
Placeholder Magazine & Tuleburg Press have partnered to create Stockton’s first Zine Festival as a culmination to a series of workshops for youth and adults over the summer. As a network of volunteer up-and-coming artists, educators, and organizers, Placeholder Magazine seeks to help cross-pollinate and promote art, literature, and culture. Tuleburg Press is an independent publishing company that works to mentor and support writers in San Joaquin County and is staffed by experienced professionals. Since 2013, both organizations have promoted literature in all forms.
You may register based on the size of table you would like to use. We offer 8ft tables for FULL or HALF use. Registration fees will go towards costs and supplies needed for the Stockton Zine Fest. We hope that you understand. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about registration fees.
Each participant will keep 100% of their earnings from Zine Fest. It is the sole responsibility each participant to determine the method of payment for any transactions made during the event.
