Vernon Winter Carnival Receives Funding
Vernon Winter Carnival Society was successful in their bid to receive funding and will be granted $150,000 over the next two years. The funding will be used to expand Vernon Winter Carnival events, adding new and exciting features to the festival. For the 60th Anniversary in 2020 this will include bringing back the iconic Ice Palace in downtown Vernon and more activities to engage our youth in the festival.
The project funding will also allow Carnival to better track visitors to our region during Vernon Winter Carnival – which is something that has never been done. Getting a clearer picture of the impact the Festival has on the community is something we are very excited to share!
