What if I didn't receive any San Diego Zine Fest emails after submitting my application?

Please contact us via email at sdzinefest@gmail.com. Sometimes emails get lost in a sea of spam emails or missed due to misspellings, causing delays. At this point everyone should have received our 1st email around 07/27/17, as well as our Saturday vs Sunday survey (google doc). If you feel like you’ve missed any of these emails please let us know.

2017 Exhibitor Fee
Exhibitor Name

All confirmed applicants that do not submit the 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.


All tables are shared/split between exhibitors. This allows us to work with the venue’s capacity and helps us to host more exhibitors.

How does the exhibitor table layout work?

The fest is sectioned out and within the sections we have a few reserved tables. The remaining tables are at a first come first serve basis.

May I reserve the spot next to me?

If you would like to share the other half/seat next to you, you may do so. We still need all Exhibitors to check in. During check in we'll have reserved signs available if needed. You may either check yourself and the other exhibitor in or let them check themselves in. Either way picking your space location is up to both parties. 

If a table reads reserved, has a name or number, please do not sit or remove the sign. Thank you.
