VENDORS

Every year on Labor Day weekend, more than 100,000 people travel to Tahlequah, Oklahoma, the capital city of the Cherokee Nation, to celebrate the September 6, 1839 signing of the Constitution of the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma after the Trail of Tears Indian removal ended.

After two years of virtual-only events, the Cherokee people are ready to celebrate in person once again. The Cherokee National Holiday office projects as many as 150,000 people from around the world will attend events this year for the 70th annual celebration.

We actively recruit vendors throughout the year, including food service, artisans, craftsmen, entertainers, performers, demonstrators and many others to make this event one of a kind. If you are interested in being a vendor at the Cherokee National Holiday, please complete the online form.
