明天是什么节日? But can you not also say: "明天节日是什么?"

Keep to 明天是什么节日。

明天,节日是什么 is a wrong structure.

明天节日是什么 is a wrong structure.

However, 明天的节日是什么 is weird because it sounds as if the day possesses the festival =_= In English you could probably say "What is tomorrow's festival", but not in Chinese.

Yes, I agree with all of the above. Had said the sentence aloud, I might have picked up the weirdness of it, and adding 的 made it worse... 哈哈哈!

In that structure, adding 的 was necessary, it made the sentence weird, but not adding 的 is just completely wrong grammatically...

Is this a proper english sentence? Is this asking about something like a music festival or what? How about "What festival is tomorrow?" or "What holiday is tomorrow?"
