The Festival began as a Bohemian housewarming in the Temple-front historical home of Dr. B.C. Sun, economist, Rotarian, and live radio show host of “La Doctora Sun, La Filosofa China” (10:00 am Tuesdays, 104.5 FM/Juan FM). The inauguration show took place in 2007 when Dr. Sun relocated from The London School of Economics to become a USU Assistant Professor of Global Business Strategy. The event has evolved into an annual “community-warming” party with the support of over 30 businesses and non-profit organizations.
