Printed Matter / St Marks and 8-Ball Community are excited to welcome you to 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.
Though originally planned for June 24, due to rainy weather the EVZF will now take place Saturday, July 8th AND Sunday, July 9th at Performance Space New York, 150 First Ave.
Saturday, July 8th
11AM - 7PM
(11AM - 1PM are mask mandatory hours, register here*)
Sunday, July 9th 11AM - 5PM
For our new venue, we cannot imagine a better alternative than Performance Space New York, a fellow arts non-profit in the heart of the East Village. We are so grateful for their support and generosity in hosting the EVZF this year 📚🎱
*Saturday will begin with two mask-mandatory hours and a reduced visitor capacity to ensure that those who are immunocompromised and/or disabled have a chance to browse the Fair. To ensure entry during this time, register via the link above or through tinyurl.com/EVZFMASK. For the rest of the Fair masks will be available and highly encouraged.
We’re so excited to welcome everyone to the fair, and since we are not outside on St Marks Pl this year, we Are working with a much more limited visitor capacity. As such, we encourage you to arrive early and be prepared for potential wait times to enter the fair. Once inside, we are asking that guests try to keep their visit limited to 2 hours so that as many people as possible get to experience the EVZF.

zines by tea bee
We know that there are far more zine makers in New York than there are tables available at the fair. So, 8-Ball will have a Drop-Off Table where anyone can sell their zines! You can drop off a stack of up to 6 zines, of which 8-Ball will sell 5 and keep 1 to be entered into their archive/library—think of it like a free consignment table. The step-by-step:
1. Drop off up to six zines at the 8-Ball Drop-Off Table
2. Enjoy the fair!
3. When you’re ready to leave, come back to the Drop-Off Table
4. We give you your zines and cash!
5. You now have fewer zines, but more cash! (Use it to buy zines?)
