There are two Chaturthi Tithis according to the Hindu calendar and these belong to lord Ganesha. According to the website of Drik Panchang, "The Chaturthi after Amavasya or new moon during Shukla Paksha is known as Vinayaka Chaturthi and the one after Purnimasi or full moon during Krishna Paksha is known as Sankashti Chaturthi."

Significance Of Vinayaka Chaturthi

Vinayaka Chaturthi is also known as Varad Vinayaka Chaturthi. Varad means "asking God to fulfill any desire one has". It's believed that if you observe this fast, then lord Ganesha, blesses devotees with wisdom and patience. "The wisdom and patience are two virtues whose significance is known to human kind since ages. Anyone who possesses these virtues can progress in life and can achieve whatever one desires," states Drik Panchang.

Puja RitualsThe puja to worship lord Ganesha on Vinayaka Chaturthi is done at noon. Wake up early, bathe prepare the sacred area where the idol of lord Ganesh will be kept. Chant mantras of lord Ganesha 108 times. Fast is also observed on this day, however fasting between two cities might be different. According to Drik Panchang, "Fasting for Vinayaka Chaturthi depends on sunrise and sunset timings and it is observed when Chaturthi Tithi prevails during midday. Hence Vinayaka Chaturthi fasting might be observed on Tritiya Tithi i.e. one day before Chaturthi Tithi. As midday time depends on sunrise and sunset, which are different for all cities, it is important to refer Hindu calendar like this website which lists location based Vinayaka Chaturthi days. As generating location based dates are time consuming most sources ignore this fact and publish single list for all Indian cities."
