Zine Fest Houston is a local volunteer-run organization and annual event dedicated to promoting zines, comics, and other forms of small press, alternative, underground DIY media and art. It is also a grassroots attempt to build the local zine, DIY, and alternative media scenes and form networks with media creators in other areas. ZFH is committed to providing accessible space to celebrate self-publishing and small presses, encouraging the distribution of independent art, writing, and media primarily through the medium of zines. The goal of the event is for attendees to discover new zines and be inspired to create their own DIY art and media projects.
