Conference Location:
The festival Heritage Conference takes place in the auditorium of the Snow College Huntsman Library, 150 E. College Ave. (the Library is just behind the main administration building, or Noyes building as it is called).

***It’s a good idea to bring a sweater or jacket as the building can feel a little chilly to some people due to air conditioning***

The conference will be held on the campus of Snow College in the new Huntsman Library Auditorium. There is no charge and advance registration is not required. For more information, contact Mike Brenchley at
