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.
THAT IS A GREAT IDEA!!! I'm getting back into zines, and my financial situation is going to get better permanently soon, so I am really looking forward to going to my 1st ever zine fair -in 16 years of making zines- MTL EXPOZINE, + I was thinking I could do at LEAST another one a year somewhere else..... CANZINE Toronto, CANZINE West Vancouver, Chicago Zine Fest, Portland Zine Symposium.... and having a calendar of all zine events around North America or the world, updated, would be really awesome!!!!
I'd even be ready to volunteer help keep it updated if it happens!
I'm getting back into the zine scene........ keep us posted!!! thanks! And yes indicating costs is very smart.... I asked CanZineWest on their Facebook page what the entry cost is, never got a reply, and couldnt find the info on the net.... not very good communication there....
....... AND I JUST NOTICED THAT POST IS 3 YEARS OLD. OOOOOOOPS. HAS IT BEEN DONE OR DID YOU GIVE UP ? (I COULD TAKE THE RELAY)
