The patron saint of Wales is Saint David, Dewi Sant in Welsh. St. David's Day is celebrated on 1 March, which some people argue should be designated a public holiday in Wales.

Other days which have been proposed for national public commemorations are 16 September (the day on which Owain Glyndŵr's rebellion began) and 11 December (the death of Llywelyn ap Gruffudd).

The traditional seasonal festivals in Wales are:
Fish Festival and Fish Week in Pembrokeshire. A festival celebrated in June / July of each year. 
Calan Gaeaf (a Hallowe'en or Samhain-type holiday on the first day of winter)
Gwyl Fair y Canhwyllau (literally Mary’s Festival of the Candles, but equivalent to Candlemas and Imbolc)
Calan Mai (May Day, and similar to Beltane)
Calan Awst (or Midsummer, equivalent to Lughnasa)
Gŵyl Mabsant celebrated by each parish in commemoration of its native saint, often marked by a fair
Dydd Santes Dwynwen, a Welsh equivalent to St Valentine's Day
Calennig is a Welsh New Year celebration
