National Holidays

Whether you want to plan a trip around a birding festival or music festival or avoid arriving in a country on a bank holiday, these sites will provide you with key dates.

Birding Events
The American Birding Association lists birding events, such as conventions, workshops, and festivals, primarily for North American.

Festivals and Events
Not everyone wants to bird from dawn to dusk. 33,000 festivals and events ranging from arts to sports are listed by month for the US, Canada, Mexico, Central American, Caribbean, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

National Holidays
Ever arrived in a country and found all the banks closed for it is a national holiday? This site will not only let you know what the dates of the major holidays but also allow you to send an e-mail card to a friend on some of the key holidays such as Christmas and New Year’s. This site passed my obscure test for it listed the major holidays for Guernsey, an island off the coast of France where Guernsey cows originated.
