Auckland Zinefest is a zinefest based in Tāmaki Makaurau that has been running since 2009.

Their bio states:

Auckland Zinefest is a celebration of creativity and self-publishing, based in Tāmaki-makau-rau / Auckland City, Aotearoa. We’re a local hub for zine culture, organising community events and activities that share and support DIY-publishing in Auckland and beyond.

Our biggest event is the annual Zinefest, where scores of zinemakers gather together to share their work, inspire others, and connect with fellow zinemakers and creatives. The events of 2020 have presented us with an opportunity to expand further into the digital realm with our first Zinefest Online, creating new opportunities to connect with the zine community across New Zealand and the world.

We’re a non-profit community group run by volunteers, local zinemakers and creatives. Our first event was in 2009 and - thanks to our volunteers and funding from generous organisations who are keen to get behind the arts - we’ve been running community events and activities since.
