Two Free Concerts Scheduled for Pioneer Park this Summer

Two Free Concerts Scheduled for Pioneer Park this Summer

Fans of live music will have plenty to enjoy this summer as City of Ferndale’s 2018 “Summer of Fun” hosts two “Music in the Park” concerts in Pioneer Park. These family-oriented concerts are a great way to spend a summer evening and see some local bands take the stage at our historic Pioneer Park.

On Saturday June 30th at 6pm, come enjoy “Penny Stinkers”, a high-energy jam band mixing Americana and classic rock with a healthy mix of the unexpected. Whether craving danceable covers or boot stomping original music, the Penny Stinkers put on a great show. You can listen to their music on their site here.

On Saturday July 14th at 6pm, groove with “The Sky Colony”, a Cascadian folk revival band that brings a fresh mix of the 60s psychedelia era with modern Pacific Northwest songwriting. Their driving melodies are a perfect match for the heat of summer. You can listen to their music on their site here.

Food trucks will be on hand to sell concessions. More information about the City of Ferndale’s 2018 “Summer of Fun” can be found by clicking here.

Wee One Nature Hunt set for Sat. May 12th, 2pm at Hovander Park

Bring your little one out to Hovander Park on Saturday May 12th at 2pm for a Nature Hunt! Participants (and enthusiastic parents) will receive a scavenger hunt of simple natural objects (a tree, a leaf, something green, a bird) and the participants will be encouraged to find as many as they can. Enjoy the fresh air and an opportunity for healthy movement at Hovander Park.

This event is part of our 2018 “Summer of Fun”. You can find out about more free recreational events by clicking here.

City-wide Clean Up Day, Sat. April 21st, 9am-1pm

Time to roll up your sleeves and make this City shine! Join the Ferndale Downtown Association for the 11th annual Ferndale City-wide Clean Up Day. Volunteers will be picking up litter, sweeping sidewalks and weeding the public areas of our downtown. Food will be provided for volunteers.

During that time, there will be a giant dumpster and recycling facilities at City Hall (2095 Main Street). Bring your yard waste, metals, appliances, electronics, cellphones and more for proper disposal. Thanks to support from WECU, we will have a paper shredder for your vital documents.

Come down and help make your city beautiful.

Help Choose Our 2018 Parks Activities

Last year, over 2,000 Ferndale residents enjoyed our “Summer of Fun”. They marveled at a solar eclipse, searched for treasure across the City, played tug-a-war with their friends and family and ate delicious food at Star Park. This year, we are expanding our recreational activities to include even more events.

Help us decide which events to hold and when to offer these recreational opportunities by taking our 2018 Parks Activities Survey. It shouldn’t take more than five minutes, and your input will shape what we offer this year.
