Just found out about this from CBAS Member  Kate Kern's  Facebook page:

About CSPF

The Cincinnati Small Press Festival is a two-day event centered around a celebration of printing and the printed word, hosted by The Mockbee.  The Mockbee is located in Cincinnati's historic Mohawk neighborhood, adjacent to the Brighton Arts District, at 2260 Central Parkway.

The first day will consist of an evening-long event, PlexArt / TextArt, showcasing print-, word-, and book-related art, textural performance and reading, followed by a dance party.  The second day will be the Cincinnati Small Press Fair, where local, regional, and national small presses, DIY artists, indie authors & musicians, book artists, printers, other word-based artists and more will gather together to show their works, sell small press-related products, and share information and ideas related to printing and the printed word.

The 2011 Festival will take place on Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1 at The Mockbee.  PlexArt TextArt gallery hours will start upstairs in the main tunnels at 7 p.m. on Friday; readings and performances will begin downstairs at 8 p.m.; and the dance party will run in the main bar from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.  Door will be $5 to the public, while admission is included for festival participants.  The Cincinnati Small Press Fair will take place on Saturday from noon to 6 p.m., and is FREE and open to the public!
