Pride Returns to Ferndale

Pride Returns to Ferndale

Ferndale Pride is one of Ferndale’s best known celebrations, and this year’s event is set to be especially exciting. Recognizing the diverse LGBTQ and ally community, Ferndale Pride aims to be a safe, fun, and inclusive event for all.

Mixing Ferndale residents, visitors, businesses, and performers, the Pride weekend is guaran-teed to have something for everybody: big-name performers, thought-provoking speakers, and unique and interesting vendors are just some of the things to look forward to at this year’s festival.

Though the main Pride event takes place in the last weekend of May, there are a number of fundraising opportunities before then in and around the city. The New Way Bar is hosting a Warm Up to Pride night on Saturday, April 12th at 9 p.m. with various fundraising opportunities. Downtown favorite Rosie O’Grady’s will host 50/50 raffles the first Wednesdays of April and May, where profits will go to supplementing the costs of putting on the weekend-long celebration. Check the pride website at for a complete calendar of events.

Attendees can look forward to an all-weekend street fair that brings together many different local flavors. On Saturday and Sunday, from Noon to 9:00 P.M., the streets will be filled with a variety of performers representing a diverse group of tastes and talents.

Two separate stages sponsored by Motor City Casino have continuous music lineups planned for entertainment and dancing. The headlining act is one of Michigan’s favorites, singer Tony Lucca, performing on Saturday night. While the music plays, you can peruse the shopping area. From local businesses to independent crafters, exploring the vendor tables will be a great way to find gifts and other unique items. A wide variety of food and drinks will also be served.

The jam-packed weekend has events to fit any schedule starting, with the Friends of the Library-sponsored “Pride Prom” — an unofficial kickoff event featured on Friday night. Saturday morning, runners, walkers, and spectators alike can join in the fun of the Rainbow Run — a standout Pride event. Registration is still open for the 2K Fun Run or 5K Walk, and participation in either events promises to be an unforgettable colorful memory. Saturday at noon marks the official kick-off balloon launch, followed by the awarding of the charitable grants organized by Pride.

New this year is the group marriage ceremony held Saturday afternoon — a first in Pride history. The fun continues with a rally for gender
equality (with an array of speakers), and a Sunday full of after-parties.
