The four noble truths - all life is suffering, suffering comes from desire/attachment, desire/attachment can be overcome, this is done by the Eightfold Path (right understanding, right purpose, right speech, right conduct, right livelihood, right effort, right alertness, right concentration). There is Buddha day (April 8th), which is when the Buddha's birth is celebrated, and Bodhi day (Dec 8th), which celebrates the day he took his place under the Bodhi tree. Nirvana day is Feb 15th, and its when the Buddha's passing is observed. There may be others, I'm not sure. I am not Buddhist. I'm pretty sure the "main belief" is overcoming desire/attachment by following the Eightfold path and reaching Nirvana.
