About

Starting its third decade, The Alternative Press Expo (APE) is one of the longest running conventions of its type in the United States. Celebrating individual creativity, APE puts illustrators, comics publishers, self-publishers, zine publishers and creators of cool and interesting work at the forefront of our giant exhibit hall.

Returned to the original founder and the original city of its founding, APE is evolving as the arts have evolved and is turning into a festival-like event that includes multiple venues. Scheduled for October 3-4 at the San Jose Convention Center's South Hall (often referred to as The Tent), the new locale is a perfect metaphor for the big tent for creativity that APE has always been.

Supporting our Kickstarter will help the new management of APE get the new locale and new event off to a good start. You can contribute by buying a ticket, getting a shirt, or helping sponsor one o four planned exhibitor activities.

Risks and challenges

There is virtually no risk here. APE 2015 is scheduled for early October and is going got happen regardless of whether this Kickstarter funds or not. Funding this project though will help us with some things that were not originally budgeted for.
