Fort Myers, FL, March 15, 2021 - Fort Myers Zine Fest returns to Love Your Rebellion’s (LYR) Zine Library on Friday, April, 23rd 2021 from 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. LYR’s Zine Library is located at Neenie’s House at 481 Marsh Ave Fort Myers, FL 33905.
Fort Myers Zine Fest is a celebration of art, writing, music, fashion, and food. The festival was started in 2019 by Love Your Rebellion, but zine festivals are arts and cultural staples in many communities. Zines, or DIY writing and art booklets, are the central feature of the fest.
This year, LYR invites zine makers from all over to set up a table in their outdoor festival space, or they can mail zines that LYR will sell on their behalf. “With so many folks still unable to travel, LYR wanted to give zine makers who can’t be at the fest physically an opportunity to sell their work.” LYR is looking for zine, music, fashion, art, and food vendors until April 15, 2021.
Plus, Love Your Rebellion is partnering with artist and promoter Victor Matos for the festivities. Matos is releasing his new brand, Injoy, which features a line of apparel. Event goers can anticipate a fashion show featuring the inaugural Injoy line, plus a pop up booth selling select items.
Additional event attractions include live artists, music performances, food and beverages for purchase, and LYR’s Zine Library. The library houses a permanent collection of over 150 art and writing zines from all over the world. Entry to Fort Myers Zine Fest and LYR’s Zine Library is free. All ages are welcome.
