Zine Camp
3-5 p.m. Central Time
Sunday, July 17, 2022
Humboldt Park, Chicago

++ PLEASE NOTE: This is an off-site event! ++

Pack up your long-arm stapler, grab your sunscreen, and meet up with your fellow zine enthusiasts at Zine Camp! If you love zines, you’re invited to this in-person, outdoor summer hangout.

Join the fun at 3-5 p.m. CT on Sunday, July 17 in Chicago’s Humboldt Park.* There will be s’mores, snacks, and some fun surprises … feel free to drop in anytime and stay for as long as you like.

Where to go in Humboldt Park:

Zine Camp will be held on the park side of North Avenue between Mozart Street and Francisco Avenue (just west of the intersection of California Avenue and North Avenue). **

Look for the Zine Camp flying proudly!

What to bring to camp (if you choose):

  • Zines to trade (your own or your faves by other zinemakers)
  • Snacks to share
  • A beverage (we recommend bug juice)
  • Sunscreen and bug spray if you need it
  • Something to sit on (blanket, camp chair, etc.)
  • A face mask if you want to wear one

Zine newbies and longtime fans alike are welcome at Zine Camp! This free event is brought to you by Zine Club Chicago + Zine Party.

More info at Facebook event here.

* Post-event gathering + BAD WEATHER LOCATION info:  After Zine Camp wraps up in the park at 5 p.m., a group of folks will head over to the outdoor patio at the Hi-Lo (1110 N. California Ave.) to continue the revelry! The Hi-Lo patio (which has tables covered with umbrellas) also will be the alternate Zine Camp gathering spot in case of rain — please keep an eye on the Zine Club Chicago social media accounts (@zineclubchicago) for updates if the weather is not conducive to a park gathering.

** Please note that the closest public restrooms that will be open during our event are just across North Avenue at Burger King (2840 W. North Ave.; purchase may be required to use facilities) and a few blocks down North Avenue at Cermak Produce (2701 W. North Ave.; purchase not required to use facilities). This isn’t ideal, of course, but the event organizers could not confirm that any public restrooms within the park will be open.

++ This event will NOT be held at Quimby’s ++
