2022 Summer of Fun

Parks events are back in full force! There is something fun to do in Ferndale every weekend this summer to get ready to dance, eat, and thrive in your parks.

This year, our parks events are made possible in part by the generous support of WECU, our local credit union serving Whatcom County for over 80 years.

Full flyer of parks events can be found here. Scroll down for more details. 

As always, our events are free and open to the public. For questions about our recreational events, please contact Riley Sweeney at or 360-685-2353.
