Get ready for CZF 2017 as we invite you to our pizza jam! CZF is a community-organized festival meaning it can’t survive without your support. We’re looking for a few new faces to join in planning the upcoming Chicago Zine Fest, so here’s your chance to learn how YOU can become more involved! Ever thought about organizing the zine fest? Want to help coordinate some of the key activities needed to run the fest? Not sure what organizing the fest is all about? Come hang with us & find out!
Join us Sunday August 21st at noon at CHIPRC (858 N Ashland Ave) to chow down with pizza from Dimo’s. Please RSVP on the Facebook event so we know how many pies to order. We can’t wait to see you at the CZF Pizza Jam!

Saturday June 25th CORRECTION: Sunday June 26th at the Comfort Station in Logan Square (2579 N Milwaukee Ave) for a delicious ice cream social!
