Pittsburgh Zine Fair is an event that strives to encourage personal expression and the sharing of knowledge by generating an environment where independent artists and writers can engage with the Pittsburgh community. A supplementary goal of the Zine Fair is to offer the general public an opportunity to gain valuable knowledge of the zine community. The event aims to foster an experience in which people of all ages, gender, background or race can engage self-published creators, zine collectors, local retailers and other local organizations in a relaxed environment.
The Pittsburgh Zine Fair was held from 11am to 7pm at the Carnegie Mellon University Center Gymnasium on September 22, 2012. Admission was free and open to the public.
