Do This: St. Pete Zine Fest

The make 'em, swap 'em, celebrate 'em fest is now in its 6th year.

Got a soft spot for DIY publications about music, poetry, humor, politics... well, just about any subject of interest under the sun? There's no need to consign zines to the lands of memory and nostalgia — self-publishing is a scene that still thrives in the age of the Information Superhighway. And this Saturday, a bunch of friendly devotees will convene at the Grand Central District's Cage Brewing to buy, sell and share.

Now in its sixth year, St. Pete Zine Fest attracts aficionados from across the state and the country. According to founder Kelly Steele, this year's fest will boast more than 40 tables of zines and other one-of-a-kind DIY goods, as well as St. Pete's beloved mobile-goods vehicles the Bluebird Book Bus and Hello Darlin' Records. Tote bags and custom enamel pins by the 'Burg's Josh Sullivan will also be available, with proceeds going toward funding a P.O. box so Zine Fest can help enable distribution of zines on a year-round basis. Want tunes while you peruse? DJ Re:Pete spins the tunes. And of course Cage has tons of great local craft beer on tap, too.
