Full list of tablers with descriptions at this link:


*The Bronson Centre is wheelchair accessible, with ground-floor, push-button entrance and ramps. There are physically accessible washrooms in the building.

*Washrooms in Mac Hall will be made gender neutral for the day.

*OZF strives to be scent free. There will be unscented soap in the washrooms. We ask that all attendees, volunteers and tablers come scent-free. Please take the time to read the following resources about how to be scent-free and why it’s important:

*This event will not be serving alcohol and we ask that people not consume alcohol or other substances on site. Folks who need drink or use other drugs prior to attending the event will not be turned away.

*There will be complimentary snacks, tea and coffee available for attendees, volunteers and tablers.

*We hope to have support liasons on site to assist and provide support including active listening, ushering and corresponding with event organizers. Please let us know on our volunteer form if this is something you feel able to do.


It would be awesome if we could promise a you safe space. The thing is, we don’t think any space is ever safe. What we can strive for, though, is to be welcoming, inclusive, and committed to accountability.

We value zines as a way for marginalized stories and experiences to be represented. We will not tolerate racist, culturally appropriative, ableist, cissexist, transmisogynistic, homophobic, classist materials or behaviour.

Please do not touch anyone or take anyone’s photo without their permission. Please ask someone’s pronouns before you assume how they should be referred to.


It is a lot of work to make a zine fair, and we would love your help! We need volunteers in a variety of areas, including hosting travelling zinesters!

Please fill out the form below if you want to volunteer or can offer a place for an out-of-town tabler to stay:
