In the times of Kiddush HaChodesh Shavuos which is 50 days after the start of Sefiras HaOmer could come out either 5, 6, or 7 Sivan depending on how many days Nisan and Iyar had. There is still one Yom Tov that can come out on 2 different days even with the current calendar. Which Yom Tov is that?

In many Hassidic communities, the final day of Chanukah has particular significance as "zos chanukah." This can be the 2nd or 3rd of Tevet, as Kislev is a month of variable length.

Shushan Purim? 15th Adar on a regular year, 16th if the 15th is Shabbos. (Well sortof -- Purim Meshulash.)

Yom Ha'atzmaut can be observed on the 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th of Iyyar.

I'll bet more people celebrate Y"H than "Zos Chanuka" (as such). :) –  Isaac Moses Oct 5 '10 at 19:36

Any fast d'rabanan, except 10 Teves, can be moved, but those, of course, don't qualify as the sought "Yom Tov".

Even 10 Tevet can be moved. We don't paskin like the avudraham who says your shittah. See Beit Yosef OC 550 –  Double AA Jul 27 '11 at 6:00
    
@DoubleAA, ask the oldest person you know whether he's ever seen 10 Teves moved. (The question specifically restricts its scope to "the current calendar", without kidush hachodesh.) –  msh210 Jan 29 '12 at 19:10
