Printed Matter / St Marks and 8-Ball Community are excited to welcome you back to St Marks Pl on Saturday, June 24 for the third annual East Village Zine Fair, a celebration of NYC’s zine-makers, independent publishers, and the East Village’s history of DIY culture past and present.

The EVZF and its programs are free and open to the public. Details about programming in community gardens, fundraising editions, musical performance and more are forthcoming! Stay up to date via Instagram (Printed Matter, 8-Ball Community) and by subscribing to Printed Matter’s mailing list


Exhibitors at the 2023 East Village Zine Fair will be selected through an open application process. This is to ensure that the fair is an ever-growing and evolving event that represents the similarly evolving landscape of publishing in NYC, including (especially!) projects that Printed Matter and 8-Ball are not yet familiar with.

Applications are now closed! Our exhibitor list will be announced in late April.
