Hey Carlos,
Don't you have any zinefest over there? Once in a comic festival in Thessaloniki I saw some pretty cool comic zines and though you have great comiczine scene.
last year was also a zinefest in other town in germany but i dont went there because was sooo far from home anyway here in frankfuert i dont know much about zine scene because im pretty new in this town.
Frankfurt? haha!! I thought u were from from Spain cause of your name!
hehehe not the story is funny im from Peru but im living in Frankfurt and im writting zines since 1995 but in spanish
about my name sure is a typical spanish name i know hehehe
In France:

DIYboogie, taking place once a year in Paris, showcases zinester from the French scene http://www.myspace.com/diyboogie

Pink Poseidon parties, taking place during the holiday seasons, also in Paris. You can buy zines during the first half of the party, because afterwards it becames totally crazy with noise / improv music, performances, etc. Very very dark. http://www.pinkposeidon.com/

Fais-Le-Toi-Même, probably the best zine festival in France, with concerts, home-made film projections, etc, takes place in autumn in Lille (North of France, near Belgium).

Indébd, a nice little comic fest with several zines, also taking place in Lille

La Fanzinothèque, the biggest zine library in Europe (I'm serious) organizes activities around the year, but they don't communicate very well about them. Take a look at their page... http://fanzino.org/

In Spain:

Encuentro Interplanetario de fanzines, taking place in Spain (they change the location each year, last time it was in Madrid, I think) in june

But most zines can also be seen during the Salón del Cómic, which takes place in may in Barcelona

Illustation, a new Barcelona festival about alternative zines and arts, with several events around the year. It's organized by French folk, has a very nice French feeling to it. http://ilustation.blogspot.com/

In England:

The London Zine Symposium, of course ! http://www.londonzinesymposium.org.uk/

I hope this helps... I even know more zine festivals, but It will take time for me to remember them all...
In the UK theres:
London Zine symposium (usually may)
Alternative Press Fair in London (usually in the winter)
Brighton Zinefest (usually may)
Edinburgh Zine Festival
Women's Library Zinefest in London
Birmingham Zinefest
There are also often things in Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle

Independents' Day
I just organised a zine fest in Gent (Belgium)... anyone going to Zine Fest Berlin?

setting up a new one in Denmark , Aarhus
