a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Beginning of November, during a weekend
For the application, make sure to check out the website around a month before the event. Check often as this can change.
In 2010, I think it was 30$ for the 2-days event, but there's also a price if you just want to be there for one day.
If you have any questions, just ask. :)
Ravenswing Zine qand Craft Fair
mid-to end of May annually, usually all day [11-5ish]
Minto Park [or Jack Purcell Community Centre in the event of rain] Ottawa, ON
Application deadline is usually end of April
Tables are usually $10 for a half, $20 for a whole.
Ravenswing is a delightful fair that occurs every year in May in a park in downtown Ottawa. It's usually a good mix of zinesters and local artisans young and old, though last year there weren't many zines, which was a sad thing [probably because the Montreal anarchist bookfair was the same weekend that year - usually it's a week before]. Because it's outdoors and downtown, you get a lot of street traffic you wouldn't normally get at a regular zine fair, which is nice. The organizers are great and there are workshops and local bands [usually really good!] who perform in the later part of the day.
Spaces are first come first serve, so show up early to get a place in the shade, or bring your own. Also! Bring your own chairs!
Saturday Mar 26th, London Public Library....11AM to whenever...more details at the link.
