A County day is a day on which a particular county may be celebrated. In particular it is a day on which to celebrate the cultural heritage of the County. These are relatively recent observances, and few counties have established county days.
A County Day may be established with a view to celebrate the County generally or out of a desire to protect heritage being lost, and there is no one way to mark the day. County days are often selected to coincide with the observance of a Saint's Day from the church calendar or another date which has some local significance.
