Life doesn’t have to be a drag — but we sure hope it is, honey.

For the seventh year in a row, fabulous Ferndale will kick-off the summer season with a celebration of our LGBTQ brothers, sisters, and nonbinary buds. Hundreds of vendors as well as participating businesses along the main drag will raise their rainbow flags in solidarity while Pride’s 15,000 attendees let their freak flags fly. From DJs and live music, to a 5k Rainbow Run, wellness planning opportunities (HIV/STI testing,) and a mass wedding on the main stage, Pride continues as an inclusive tradition.

Ferndale Pride will take place on Saturday, June 2 starting at 10 a.m; Downtown Ferndale;; Event is free and open to the public.
