"Yo sé cuándo es la fiesta."
Translation:I know when the party is.
It's fine, and in this case it's the best way to do it. I'm a native UK English speaker.
Here are some examples of sentences ending with "is". They were found on various websites.
I'm not sure what the news is.
We'll see what the answer is.
I don't know what the situation is.
I am not sure, what the problem is.
These are all correct and natural.
Try typing "ending a sentence with are or is" into Google. There are many references.
I'm sorry, for some reason the second of those links doesn't work properly. Here is the text I was trying to share:

Anonymous I would love to know what the grammar rule is here. For example: I want to know what his name is.She wants to see where the puppies are.
These are good examples of indirect questions. The clause following the verb has a question.
I want to know what his name is. What is his name? I want to know. She wants to see where the puppies are. Where are the puppies? She wants to see (that place).
In questions, the subject and verb are in a different order than in normal sentences. In indirect questions, the subject and verb are in the normal order. That is why sentences with indirect questions can end in a verb.
It is not a question, it's a statement - "I know when the party is" - & as such it surely does not have the accent, right?
I'm sorry but you are wrong. Don't worry I understand you, using spanish accents correctly is very confuse (Even for the natives).
I think the problem in this sentence is that It's not a statement but an exclamation. In this case to say "cuándo" is right.
I'm spanish speaker, but, my question is: ¿can we say the next?
"I know when is the party"
English sentences don't usually end in is. i know when is the party is much more natural. I'm only here because Duolingo said I was wrong when I entered it.
yes it does need the accent. It is an indirect question. see https://espanol.lingolia.com/en/grammar/sentence-structure/indirect-questions for more info
Well, there are only two posts here asking the same question, and marcy65brown has already answered it.
The question is "¿cuándo es la fiesta?" If you include those words in another sentence, the accent mark stays.
It's not a question. "Sé cuando es la fiesta/I know where the party is" is a statement. As Zeus28808 says, adverbs like "cuando" (when) and "como" (how) don't get accents when used in statements. Accents on "cuando" and "como" are only used in questions.
It is an "indirect question" i can see how you might think that it isn't a question because it end's with a period. Here https://espanol.lingolia.com/en/grammar/sentence-structure/indirect-questions you can see how indirect questions are formed in spanish.
Accents on "cuando" and "como" are only used in questions.
That's not correct, examples:
- Me pregunto cuándo llegó.
- No tiene cuándo ir.
- No sé cómo agradecerle tantos favores.
- No te imaginas cómo llovía en ese sitio.
Very good, and correct. Have a lingot. For a good reference, see this:
