Since the first event in 2012, L.A. Zine Fest (LAZF) has been volunteer-run. Funds for the event are generated from a combination of table fees, merchandise sales, and year-round educational workshops.

In 2019, we began to hold the Fest at a venue that donated the space to us, eliminating our single greatest annual expense. We decided to seize on that opportunity to offer tablers sliding scale table fees—meaning that tablers can pay a table fee that they determine instead of charging everyone the same price. Sliding scale table fees acknowledge that not all tablers have the same financial resources, and seeks to make the Fest more financially accessible to all.
Sliding scale fees are something we are only able to do because our event costs decreased dramatically, but we know this arrangement won't last forever. In the meantime, we are raising funds on a continual basis to pay for event expenses and to ensure that sliding scale fees can stick around regardless of where our event is held. Every dollar helps!
