Vernon Winter Carnival Society Introduces New Executive Director

Exciting news! The Vernon Winter Carnival Society is pleased to introduce our new Executive Director, Kris Fuller.

Kris joins the Vernon Winter Carnival team as they are preparing for the 2023 Festival which will be held Feb 3-12.

Vicki Proulx has been the Executive Director of Vernon Winter Carnival for the past six years. “Kris is an incredible person with a huge heart and lots of talent. I’m so excited to see her soar in this role, she’s going to be terrific.”

Fuller has called Vernon home since 2008 and you can find her enjoying our lakes in summer and skiing or snowshoeing at SilverStar in winter. She loves the sense of community Vernon brings to her life and has thrived taking part in different volunteer roles and organizations, such as North Okanagan Women’s Soccer, Vernon Volleyball, Okanagan Artists of Canada Society and more. Kris is enthusiastic, energetic and passionate about community and brings with her a wealth of experience in event planning and non-profit organization.

“I love Vernon Winter Carnival, my first year with the Society is going to be incredible. We are finally returning to a normal festival and I know everyone is looking forward to the revival of so many events. Additionally, I am so fortunate to have the current Executive Director, Vicki Proulx to work shoulder to shoulder with. I’ve got big shoes to fill and I’m fortunate to have her by my side for this season.” Says Fuller.

Vicki Proulx will continue to work with the Society and Fuller in her new role until the end of February 2023, ensuring a smooth transition period and hand off of the annual Winter festival.
