Join us for a free, all ages concert July 14th at 6pm. Jump, dance, hoot and holler at the stage in Pioneer Park with Sky Colony.
The Sky Colony’s sound is a folk rock revival. They describe it as “a mixture of the call of the Cascadian wilderness and an ‘age past’, the 60’s psychedelia era. Time upon time it has been deemed unique, a sound of ‘luminous spirituality that sets a fire in the mind’.” Learn more about them by clicking here.
This event is part of our 2018 “Summer of Fun”. You can find out about more free recreational events by clicking here.

What do you want to see in your downtown? The City is looking to jump start our downtown by encouraging residential and commercial developments that allow folks to live within walking distance of Main Street, and we are soliciting your feedback through social media. You can look at the outline of the Catalyst program that being proposed by clicking here.
As we dig into how to encourage this development, what we need to know from the public is . . .
Remember that the City does not conduct private development, but we can encourage some projects to move forward through tax incentives.
The City of Ferndale wants you to attend a City Council meeting and share what you learned with a neighbor. Come see local politics in action and learn more about what is happening in your city and you could receive a $10 gift card to Woods Coffee as part of our “Brewing over City Business” program.
If this is your first time attending a City Council meeting, you live in Ferndale and are not a student, sign up at the beginning of the meeting to receive a free coffee card. Once the meeting is gaveled close, you will receive the gift card. The City urges you to find a friend, a neighbor or family member and invite them out to coffee and share your experiences.
Democracy is not a spectator sport, and our hope is that this will inspire everyone to engage with their local government and have a better understanding of how the City operates. This is a pilot program to increase transparency and civic participation.
“Brewing over City Business” is made possible thanks to a generous donation from Woods Coffee and support from the Whatcom Community Foundation as part of the Project Neighborly initiative. No city funds were expended to make this happen.
For more information or questions, please contact Communications Officer Riley Sweeney at (360) 685-2353 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
