Canberra Day is a public holiday held annually on the second Monday in March in the Australian Capital Territorymarker (ACT) to celebrate the official naming of Canberramarker. Canberra was named at a ceremony on March 12 1913 by Lady Denman, the wife of the then Governor-General Lord Denman.

On 3 March 2007, ACT Minister Andrew Barr introduced a bill to change the day of Canberra Day to the second Monday in March so it falls closer to the actual birthday of Canberra. Previously it had been held on the third Monday in March.
