The Orange County Zine Fest is a partnership with Anaheim Public Library that takes place at Central Library in Anaheim, CA. The annual event includes a day with hundreds of zine creators, panel discussions, speakers, and workshops celebrating self-expression and DIY culture.
The 8th Annual OC Zine Fest is entirely virtual and will take place on Friday, August 27, 2021. Check back to find the virtual schedule and 2021 zine directory at oczinefest.com.
In 2017, the Orange County Zine Fest began partnering with Anaheim Public Library (Anaheim, CA). This partnership enabled OCZF to host zinesters without charging tabling fees in an environment that supports literacy and free speech.
Each year, participating zinesters are asked to donate copies of their zines to build Anaheim Public Library's zine collection, showcasing and preserving the work of local creators. Anaheim Public Library's zine collection is the first and only collection that allows library cardholders to check out zines for free.
