Since 2011, Ferndale has kicked off summer with its annual pride festival. Listed on the website After Ellen as a ”Small City Pride That is Worth the Trip,” Ferndale Pride draws more than 25,000 attendees for a full week of events leading up to Pride’s premiere event the daylong street fair. At one end of the fair, the mainstage entertains crowds with internationally known artists, such as The Clicks, Goddess & She, Tony Lucca and Sick of Sarah. The dance stage keeps the crowd boogying as Detroit’s best DJs spin into the evening. Over a hundred booths line the streets as sponsors and vendors create a festive mood for the participants.
