We advise everyone to read the exhibitor details carefully. All applicants are subject to review before exhibitor confirmation status.
FILL OUT THE APPLICATION FORM - Available from July 1st to July 20th.
Only one form needed per exhibitor, this includes collectives. Confirmation emails are sent after registration closes, once all exhibitors are reviewed.
SATURDAY OR SUNDAY EXHIBITOR - Sorry, two day exhibitor option not available. If you’re flying in from out of state or from another country , we do make exceptions. We are limited in space so if this is the case please apply sooner than later. :)
The SD Zine Fest will select each applicants exhibitor day, which will be included in your confirmation email. Our goal is to ensure the success of all exhibitors. Curating the fest allows us to maintain a good balance of zine makers and visual artists for both days.
But don’t worry, the application has a section where you can submit an ideal day and any notes regarding your limitations. Informing the fest of your availability or limitations will help us prevent scheduling conflicts.
EMAIL ONE ZINE COVER PHOTO - Cover photo submission deadline is July 20th. Don't delay your chances, please complete step 2 soon after step 1.
To complete your application, please email one zine cover photo (example below). Both black & white or color photos are acceptable submissions. Dont stress over this too much, we'd just like a visual idea of your zine. Please include your submitted exhibitor name in the email as well, or else we won’t know who the cover is from.
Please include Exhibitor Name in email. email@example.com
All application update emails are sent once registration closes and we’ve reviewed all applicants. Thank you.

What happens if I don’t submit my fee?
All confirmed applicants that do not complete the application process or submit exhibitor fee, forfeit their spot to those on the Standby List. Please let us know if you would like to be removed from the Confirmed Exhibitor list.
What time is exhibitor check-in?
Exhibitor Check-In (both Saturday & Sunday) opens at 11am and closes promptly at 11:45am. Because we will be busy setting up we will not open check-in before 11am. You’re more then welcome to start lining up along the designated wall. Please use your registered EXHIBITOR NAME when checking-in. If you do not remember visit our event web page where exhibitor names are listed.
Tables & Chairs are provided. (The tables are 8ft long, utility style folding tables.)
All tables are shared/split between exhibitors (2 per table). Sorry if this is not ideal but shared tables allow us to work with the venue’s capacity and helps us to host more exhibitors.
How does the exhibitor layout work?
We’ve sectioned out the fest and set up the tables. The exhibitor tables are at a first come first serve basis. Only few tables are reserved.
Please do not sit (or remove) signs that read reserved, have a name or number on it. Thank you.
May I reserve the spot next to me?
Yes, you may do so during the day of the event at check-in. Please check in both exhibitor names and request a reserved sign. No need to email a request.
We will be using the main entrance area parking to unload fest related needs. Please, please, please do not block the main driveway with parked cars. We have food vendors unloading major equipment, besides walking is good for you. Please make plans to get dropped off or pull up as near as possible. We are all trying to unload in a timely manner, please be mindful of others.
The venue is located in a neighborhood with unmetered street parking. The venue has a small parking lot behind the building (near the alley) with limited spaces. You could park then unload or vise versa, totally up to you.
FYI - The best street parking available is on Kearny Ave.. It’s a one way street so you’ll want to drive up (while on Julian) to S. Evans St, make a right and then another right onto Kearny Ave. There’s usually plenty of parking anywhere on the left side curb. All parking is open to the public but if possible try to avoid parking in front of peoples homes.
