TC Zinefest in MPLS

Zinefest is the Twin Cities’ premiere DIY craft, culture and
self-publishing event, and it’s happening soon! The TC Zinefest
strives to connect the Twin Cities community to DIY culture as openly
and easily as possible by making tables affordable to exhibitors, and
events and admission free to attendees. Come to trade, buy, talk or
learn. Things are happening all day at Zinefest, and we hope you can
come take a look!
