We’re thrilled to welcome everyone back to Chicago Zine Fest on Saturday May 20, 2023! We’ll be returning to Plumbers Hall in the West Loop (1350 W Washington Blvd) for our Exhibition Day. We’re also planning an online event on the evening of Friday May 19—stay tuned for more info.
If you were accepted to table at CZF 2020, we’ve reserved a spot for you at CZF 2023. Check your email for the link to the form to let us know if you’ll be joining us on May 20th.
We know COVID’s not over—we’ll be working to provide a safer environment for volunteers, exhibitors, and attendees. Masks will be available and strongly recommended for everyone at the event. We’ll also be limiting the number of shared tables to provide more space between exhibitors. We hope you’re as excited as we are about shifting back to providing both in-person and online events!
