Bram Stoker Festival returns for its seventh season this October Bank Holiday Weekend (Friday 26 Oct – Mon 29 Oct), powered by an army of volunteer monsters, ghouls and ghosts who, for the 4 days of the festival, roam the streets of Dublin City bringing to life our Gothic gathering.

Volunteers can participate in all aspects of the festival; from behind the scenes assisting our marketing and administrative departments, to out front stewarding parades, ushering at our haunted venues, contributing to social media, assisting with make-up & costuming, or acting as ambassadors at events. There’s something for everyone keen to get involved, or see what it takes to bring a festival of this size to life.
