The Grand Rapids Zine Fest is an annual zine festival first held on August 24th, 2013. This one-day event celebrates the self-publishing culture in West Michigan, providing a space for zinesters to share and sell their work.
Every year we strive to make the fest an awesome event where everyone feels welcome.
In 2019 we had over 500 attendees and 50 local and regional exhibitors! Admission is always free. The GRZF is a non-profit organization, and our event succeeds due to awesome participants, donations, and volunteers!
Our team consists of two members: Sara Chittenden and Austin Knight. You are always welcome to contact us with any questions or concerns!
