EUZINE Comics & Zine Fest 2018 Saturday, November 10th // 11:00am–6:00pm The Auditorium, Lane Events Center 796 W 13th Ave., Eugene, OR 97402
EUZINE is a festival for Graphic Artists and Authors (working in Comics, Zines, Print Media and Illustration) to showcase and sell their works and wares to the general public. Each Artist or Publishing House will occupy a table or half table and be responsible for their own cash transactions. The majority of works must be considered self-published or graphic media (comics/zines/illustrations) but other table appropriate goods (such as shirts, totes, jewelry/pins, stickers/patches, small sculptures, etc.) are acceptable as an extension of your creative expression. EUZINE is a 7 hour event, from 11AM–6PM at the Wheeler Pavilion, Lane Events Center, 796 W 13th Ave., Eugene OR 97402. We will be open as early as 10 AM for the artists who are tabling. We expect tabling artists to arrive early enough to find their placement and set up their table prior to when the event opens to the public. Takedown is expected at or after 6:00pm.
