The City of Ferndale hosts a series of recreational activities that are free and open to the public every year.

See below for details on 2021 Summer of Fun.

If you have questions about any of these events, please contact Communications Officer Riley Sweeney at (360) 685-2353 or send him an email here.

As required by Governor Inslee’s Proclamation 20-25.2 (Healthy Washington Roadmap to Recovery), face coverings and social distancing protocols will be required for all attendees. This is an essential and necessary component to making these events safe and successful.

The only mask exception the City will allow is for persons with a medical condition, mental health condition, developmental or cognitive condition, or disability that prevents them from wearing a facial covering. The City is not allowing exceptions for any other attendees, even when six-foot distancing can be maintained from non-family members.

City staff will have face shields and masks available at no cost for those who need them.  This requirement may be lifted at a later date as public health conditions improve.

Come on down to Star Park to purchase some hot, delicious meals cooked by local food trucks. Food is available for purchase starting at 5:30pm and they will keep serving until they run out of food or customers, whichever happens first.
