Welcome to the home of World Goth Day!
World Goth Day is exactly what it says on the wrapper-a day where the goth scene gets to celebrate its own being, and an opportunity to make its presence known to the rest of the world. This day falls on 22nd May of every year.
The purpose of this site is to centralise as much as possible everything you would need to make World Goth Day a success, and therefore make the goth scene a success in your part of the world.
How this site works
You will find downloadable promotional posters, web banners & other helpful bits as we can provide them on this site, and there is a Goth Day Forum in place for people and promoters to exchange ideas, set up meets, etc.
We'll also keep a constantly updated list of World Goth Day events as provided by the promoters so you can check for the nearest one to you. (and if there isn't one, you could always give it a go yourself).
Please bear in mind that this World Goth Day website is a 'labour of love' of a few dedicated people, and not a corporate body with several hundred staff in the background! There may be times when you don't see much going on here; all we ask is patience-we'll get round to updating the site as much as possible.
In the meantime, you can contact us with any questions you have about World Goth Day-we'll try to help!

World Goth Day 2012 in the media.
There's been amazing media coverage for World Goth Day this year, and apart from being one of the top worldwide trends on Twitter, there's also been a lot of partying and blogging! Here's just some of the coverage that we've been made aware of:
Rolling Stone Magazine

There's still more coverage out there, and we also have to reply to one or two journalists for their stories!
We can't thank everyone enough for supporting World Goth Day, spreading the word, getting involved and just really enjoying it! The party is NOT over yet either, as there are several events worldwide that will be taking place this weekend too! See the Events page for details on the World Goth Day events yet to happen!
