About Zine Fest Houston

Zine Fest Houston (ZFH) is an annual, all-ages festival dedicated to promoting zines (self-published magazines), mini-comics and other forms of small press, alternative and underground DIY media and art. Admission is always free and low cost table space is made available for creators, writers and artists involved in the creation, publication, distribution or promotion of alternative DIY media. ZFH is the sole event in Houston that specifically provides a platform for emerging and established regional and national zine makers in the DIY community to exchange new work and create meaningful relationships that lead to productive collaboration.

The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art

The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art is a multi-site art center that exists to give Houstonians unique and authentic experiences that ignite the courage to create in everyone. We proudly preserve the legacies of the visionary artists behind the Orange Show Monument, the Beer Can House, Smither Park and the Art Car Parade, and produce year-round programs designed to inspire curiosity and leave you feeling like part of our community.


Ample free parking is available in the attached gravel parking lot. Be sure to head to the open warehouse located off Gulf Terminal Drive and not The Orange Show on Munger Street.
