Hello! It has been a while!
We are hard at work preparing for Seminole Days 2022.
Let's get up-to-date!
Seminole Days 2022
This year will be the first time we've celebrated in-persion since 2019. In 2020, we had a drive-through BBQ plate sale. In 2021, we focused on outdoor activities across the three-day celebration, so we went out to Seminole Canyon, had our parade and BBQ plate sale, and our cemetery service on Sunday.
For this year's full itinerary, please take a look at the flyer below:
We've created a special section on our website that is dedicated to Seminole Days. Each event has its own page. If you have any particular event that you are curious about or would like more information about, this is the place to go.
For the past ten years (except for 2020 because of COVID-19), we have started off our annual three-day celebration with a trip to Seminole Canyon. This year marks a decade that we have been doing this. This trip is open to everyone. We will meet at the Carver School at 6:30 AM and will leave at 7:00 AM. We should arrive in Comstock (where Seminole Canyon is located) at about 8:30 AM.
Please note: According to our guide Tanya, because of the rain, we will have to take a different route to the Watering Hole. Be prepared to walk/hike a little bit longer. We will provide more information before Friday morning.

Afro-seminole creole lessons
Since Juneteenth 2021, we have been having monthly classes in an effort to revitalize our language, which is called Afro-Seminole Creole. During Seminole Days, we will have two lessons. One will be on Friday at 5PM and the second will be on Saturday at the same time. The classes will be taught by reknowned linguist Dr. Ian Hancock. We will be providing updated dictionaries and handouts for participants who are in attendance.
