Auckland Zinefest is a non-profit community event that celebrates and promotes DIY and self publishing in Auckland city.

Previously it was held at Cross Street Studios in 2009. Before this, there was a zinefest about 4 years prior that was put on under the name "Small Print".

In 2010  Zinefest was held at St Kevins Arcade and Wine Cellar in Newton, Auckland. The after party took place at Wine Cellar and Whammy bar.

Zinefest is run by volunteers who have a passion for community arts projects and zines.

What is a zine?
Here is an excerpt from zinewiki:
A zine - pronounced zeen - derived from magazine - is an independently- or self-published booklet, often created by a single person. Zines are customarily created by physically cutting and gluing text and images together onto a master flat for photocopying, but it is also common to produce the master by typing and formatting pages on a computer. The end product is usually folded and stapled. Zines can be printed and bound in any manner. Offset printing is a relatively common alternative to photocopying, though there is some controversy among zine writers as to whether professionally printed products may be defined as zines.
