Founded in 1989, the Fettuccine Forum began in Noodles Italian Restaurant on Main Street (hence the “fettuccine”). In 2004, Boise State and the city of Boise revived the forum as a First Thursday event.
This season of the Forum is sponsored by the Idaho Humanities Council with support from the Office of the Mayor, Boise State Public Radio, Platform Architecture-Design, TAG Historical Research, SHRA Stevens Historical Research Associates, Trademark Sign and Landmark Impressions.
