Would "vandaag is een culturele dag" be incorrect?

Nope, but in English it would be 'Today is a cultural day'. So, even though the sentence is correct, it wouldn't be a correct answer.

Ah, it all comes down to the phrasing order as usual. Gotcha! Bedankt! :)

don't see the difference between "Today is a cultural day", "It is a cultural day today", and my answer "It is today a cultural day". I think sometimes the dutch-english duolingo is a bit too severe

Actually Alexks, "Today is a cultural day" and "It is a cultural day today" are more natural English word orders than "It is today a cultural day". Sorry, but that's just one of the things about English that makes it easy for native speakers, and not for everybody else.

Think of El Día de los Muertos (even though that's two days). Days like that, that hold significance in different cultures.
