Yunlin International Puppet Arts Festival was founded in 1999, and Yunlin becomes puppets' hometown in Taiwan, creating a variety of performing schools. To establish the International Puppet Arts Festival is to realize Yunlin as a cultural county, to carry forward the traditions of fine art, and to promote international cultural exchanges.
