Auckland Zinefest is back! Celebrate everything zines and DIY at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki.

Enjoy unique works from over 120 zine-makers, indie publishers and artists from around Aotearoa New Zealand. From poetry to illustrations, travelogues to comics, fanzines to activist zines, you'll be sure to find one-of-a-kind creations that will inform and ignite your creative flair.

Zines are a medium for people to express and share experiences and opinions that are usually underrepresented in mainstream media. This is why Auckland Zinefest attracts various communities and provides an interactive space to meet and share knowledge.

Join the festivities! Enjoy free entry to Auckland Art Gallery and the market. Make sure to bring cash to purchase zines directly from stallholders, as well as a bag to carry them home.

Want to come but prefer a low-stimulation environment? Visit on Saturday between 10–11am for our quiet hour. This is a chance for any visitors who for whatever reason can’t attend when Zinefest is crowded.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
