    There is a party at Beatrice's house on Sunday noon.

    Which is right? on Sunday noon. or at Sunday noon.

    Q:Which preposition is right for the sentence above? Thank you.

    [Not a teacehr]

    IMHO, at.
    It is "Sunday noon" that you have to take into considertation; not just "Sunday."

    You say on Sunday, but at noon. In this case, the name of day of the week determines the use of on in the phrase:

    on Sunday noon
    just like in:
    on Sunday night (on Sunday, but at night)

    You can also say Sunday noon, without the prepositon on, though.
