St. David's Day

Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant
March 1

St. David
St. David, Patron Saint of Wales



St David’s Day commemorates the day ~ March 1, 589 ~ that the patron saint of Wales died. It wasn’t until the 18th century that St David’s Day was declared a national day of celebration in Wales. A 2007 attempt to make the day a national holiday was rejected by Prime Minister Tony Blair, d
espite polls showing 87% support by Welsh people.

St. David is usually depicted holding a dove or standing on a hill. His symbol is the leek.

Across Wales, St. David’s Day is celebrated with parades. Food festivals, concerts and street parties will be found in larger cities. A week-long festival in Swansea features music, sporting and cultural events. And despite the fact that Saint David abstained from drinking and advised others to do the same, a number of Welsh breweries prepare special St. David’s Day ales.
