As we reported HERE in November, the 10th annual Orlando Zine Fest will be taking place on Saturday, December 16 at the Dirty Laundry Amphitheater by Wills Pub and Lil Indies at 1042 N. Mills Avenue [GMap].

The event is free to enter and will feature food trucks, coffee, record store pop-ups, movie screenings and of course the self-published work of roughly 50 local/ish zine makers, including Bungalower.

The event is free to attend and runs from 5-10 p.m.

The word “zine” is short for magazine and refers to a form of self-published print products usually created with photocopiers. Zines are usually printed for a small circulation of under 1,000 copies but that varies, and are meant to share points of views rather than to make a profit, but there as many different types of zines in the world as there are artists and writers.
