St David’s Day

Date: 1 March 2022

Place: London, United Kingdom

The Welsh national day or St. David Day is celebrated in abundance across London, with restaurants serving traditional dishes and plentiful entertainment on offer. St David is the patron saint of Wales, and since London has a large Welsh contingency, you’ll find a party atmosphere at the many events held across the city. To mark the day, Welsh people around the world wear one or both of Wales’s national emblems – a daffodil and a leek.  Patron saints are chosen by the communities to be special protectors or guardians over all areas of life.  Rarebit, Welsh cakes and leeks and lamb are the best treats in St. David’s Day.

Caravel La Pinta Festival

Date: 4-6 March, 2022

The people of Baiona in Spain celebrate Caravel La Pinta Festival to commemorate the arrival of the caravel “La Pinta” in its port, bringing the news of the discovery of America. La Pinta was a caravel-type vessel. By tradition Spanish ships were named after saints and usually given nicknames. In order to remember this important historical event, there are many celebrations in March. A real medieval festival takes place on the streets in the old quarter and in the nearby avenues, selling typical 15th century crafts. Musicians, minstrels, jugglers and artisans provide entertainment for visitors.

Feast of the Annunciation
