The Cherokee Nation Holiday is a beloved Tahlequah event celebrating the history, heritage, and future of the Cherokee Nation that normally takes place during Labor Day Weekend in Tahlequah. Due to COVID-19, the bulk of activities have moved to a virtual format.
Participants of any tribal affiliation are encouraged to submit their dance videos to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and tag @CherokeeNationalHoliday. All of the contest rules, categories, and prizes can be seen online at the Cherokee National Holiday Website.
Virtual Car Show
Participants of the Virtual Car Show can record a video of the interior and exterior of their rides and submit those on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and should include #CNHCarShow2020. The car show is open to the public and participants do not have to be tribally affiliated to participate.
