Holiday Special

Jefferson and Adams: A Stage Play

Jefferson & Adams: A Stage Play is the story of the turbulent 52-year friendship of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Adams’ wife, Abigail. Based on the collection of letters between these prolific founding fathers – and one equally astute wife – the play fuses compelling political thoughts with passionate personal beliefs. By focusing on the unique relationship between the characters and the spirit of the time, the play reveals each of the three as thoughtful, persevering, dedicated, innovative, relevant – and human.

Watch this holiday special on 360 North.

July 3 - 8:00 pm

Three Days of Celebration

Celebration is a biennial festival of Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian tribal members organized every two years by Sealaska Heritage Institute. The Juneau event began in 1982. Since that time, Celebration has been encouraging individuals, families, clans and communities to participate in traditional song and dance, arts and crafts, and the revitalization of Native languages. It is one of the largest gatherings of Southeast Alaska Native peoples.

In conjunction with Sealaska Heritage Institute, KTOO-TV produced more than 40 hours of Celebration 2008 coverage over three days in June. 360 North will air all of the coverage of this special event during the July 4 holiday weekend.

Celebration 2008
July 4, 5 and 6
9:00 am until 11:00 pm

Fourteen hours a day... the Celebration never stops!
