VEND AT ZINE FEST

Tabling at Milwaukee Zine Fest is so fun that we sell out of spots every year! 

 

To keep everyone's chances of getting in as fair as possible, we run an audited lottery each season.  The lottery remains open for several days and joining it below is totally free!

When the lottery closes, the Zine Team randomly pulls a batch of accepted vendors. We then do a diversity audit of those selected to ensure fair representation in a variety of ways. We believe inclusion needs to be proactively instigated: this is what the audit is for. 

Those who get in via the lottery must then officially register, including paying a $20 vendor fee, to confirm their spot. Everyone else gets waitlisted in random order and are contacted if/when slots open up.

How does an audited lottery work? What happens behind the curtain and why?

The 2024 lottery has now closed.

The 2025 lottery will be open in Jan/Feb of 2025. Stay tuned!
