Announcing Ferndale Parks 2022 Summer of Fun

Ferndale Announces 2022 Summer of Fun Parks Activities

The City of Ferndale is proud to announce a full slate of summer parks activities this year, including everything from acrobats to a Metallica cover band. Participants can enjoy movies, food, live music and activities in Ferndale’s parks almost every weekend throughout the summer.

“I know everyone is ready to cut loose and have fun in the parks this year,” said Mayor Greg Hansen. “Once again, Ferndale has an incredible line up of free, family-friendly activities ready to go.”

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

Here is the full slate of activities:

Food Truck Fridays will be held on the first Friday of each summer month (June 3rd, July 1st, August 5th and September 2nd) at Pioneer Village, next to Star Park. Food trucks from around Whatcom County will be selling hot meals starting at 5:30 p.m.

In addition, there will be interactive entertainment at each Food truck event. June’s event will include a performance by the Bellingham Circus Guild on the Pioneer Park stage. July’s event will include several croquet courses for play throughout the evening and August’s event will feature a performance by swamp rock and Americana band Pacific Twang.

Music in the Park. Are you ready to rock? Join Ferndale for three live concerts on the Pioneer Village stage this summer starting at 6 p.m. Food trucks will also be on site selling meals for concert attendees.

Saturday, June 11th – The Walrus. This Bellingham-based classic rock band brings the hits of the Beatles, Queen, Led Zepplin, Tom Petty, Heart and more to life with their lively vocals and rich musical arrangements. If you are looking for a classic fun pop band – don’t miss The Walrus!

Saturday, July 9th – Blistered Earth. We are proud to welcome the DEFINITIVE Metallica Tribute Band to the Pioneer Village Stage. Experience the raw energy and showmanship, as Blistered Earth pays its respects to the one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time.

Friday, July 22nd – Baby Cakes. This Bellingham-based powerhouse band provides a luxurious joyride through the golden age of American Soul, Funk and R&B. Their unique mix of male and female lead vocals, as well as full horn and rhythm section, will have you dancing in your seats!

Flicks in the Park. Grab your blanket or comfortable camping chair and come on down to Pioneer Park when the sun goes down for a feature film. The movie starts a little after 9 p.m. when it gets dark enough to see the film.

June 17th – Encanto. Get swept away by the Pixar magic of this multi-generational tale of magical gifts, family and toe-tapping music that we guarantee will be stuck in your head forever. (Rated PG)

June 24th – Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Do you like time travel? How about Keanu Reeves? What about the power of epic rock music to heal the space-time continuum? Don’t take it from us, come on down and enjoy this classic comedy so that we all can be excellent to each other. (Rated PG)

July 8th – Spider-Man: No Way Home. Say you are your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man and you have accidentally released your secret identity to the world. What do you get? A wizard to fix it, obviously. When Dr. Strange’s spell goes awry, Spider-Man must enlist help to try and fix everything. Superhero thrills at their finest.  (Rated PG-13)

Field Games, July 16th at 1 p.m. at VanderYacht Park. Sack races, tug-o-war, toss the water balloon and more.
