Especially Greyhawk City? I'd really like to know what events are celebrated and the dates (holidays, memorials, god-days, etc...)

Here's a list I got from an old Greyhawk calendar I got from somewhere unremembered. Note that I have no idea why some of these days are holy; I know only that they were listed as such on the calendar. I also have no idea what some of the named holidays are supposed to be - you'll have to do your own research. Note also that some days have multiple holidays and that some deities have multiple holy days. Hope this helps.

Have you checked the wiki at all? There's a category titled "Greyhawk holidays": http://www.canonfire.com/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Greyhawk_holidays

As an aside, what Greyhawk materials do you own, AnimeFan?

"The Adventure Begins" and Dragon Annual #4, if you can get your hands on them, have excellent info on the festivals and holidays of Greyhawk.

Ah, a stroll down memory lane. My favorite of these was GVD's Crabapple Fairs for his take on the ancient rural English art of gurning. Of course I think Glen submitted almost all of the entries for this postfest. Take a look in the "Peoples & Culture" topic for these.

Tried using the link to Greyhawk holidays and it put up an internal error.

Also the Search function for the message board seems to be broken.

That is all. :P

Or just use google's search engine (or a different one) and type site:canonfire.com to restrict your searches to this site.
