Thanks again to all of the exhibitors, volunteers, and visitors who were able to come out yesterday! We’ve still got some posters and shirts leftover, so if you’d like to grab one (10 for shirts and 1-10 donation for posters) you can either send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send them to you, or you can pick them up from Have Company on Division Ave. Also, a huge thank you to the DAAC for helping us pay off the rest of the rental fee.

Looking for even more Michigan zine fun? Check out Mid-Michigan Zine Fair! October 11, in East Lansing, MI. You can register for this year’s fest at http://midmichiganzinefair.tumblr.com/registration
We have just closed registration for this year’s GRZF, but you can fill sign up for the waiting list if you’d still like to table! If someone drops out, or if we are able to fit more tables, then we will notify those on the waiting list that they can exhibit the day of the fest. Everyone who has signed up has until the end of July to pay for their table before they lose their spot.
The link for the waiting list is here.
On June 6th from 4-9pm, Bartertown Diner & CVLT PIZZ∆ will be hosting a Friday night fundraiser for the Grand Rapids Zine Fest. An amazing 20% of their sales will go towards renting the WMCAT for this year’s zine fest!
Their food is already phenomenal, so just imagine how it will taste when you know that it is also supporting your city’s Zine Community!
