12th Annual East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest (2021)

From the sparkling zine community of the Bay Area, the 12th Annual East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest (EBABZ) invites you to immerse yourself in a virtual ballroom of zine mania! EBABZ will feature over 50 vendors selling zines, comics, books, and art as well as workshops led by local artists and zinesters. This year’s theme is IRL/URL, and the flier was designed by long-time EBABZ team member Gill Dreher.

This year’s event will be hybrid due to the ongoing pandemic. Virtual tabling will occur on the EBABZ website the weekend of December 11–12. We will be hosting two in-person events, both at Rock Paper Scissors Collective (RPSC): an Oakland First Friday group exhibition opening (December 3rd) and an eight-fold zine making workshop on December 9th.

The East Bay Alternative Book and Zine Fest is an all volunteer-run and not-for-profit event dedicated to supporting, promoting, and educating the public about the zine, self-publishing, and DIY community of the Bay Area. EBABZ is put on in conjunction with Rock Paper Scissors Collective, a member-directed, all volunteer-run nonprofit organization that fosters creativity and collaboration in order to strengthen local communities, encourage sustainable creative practices, and explore alternative models.
