Work already is underway for Ferndale Pride 2017. As the kick-off event to summer, Pride is a great way to showcase your company as a sponsor and proud supporter of our diverse community.

 

Last year, we had several sponsors request sponsorship materials in December. As a former sponsor, you are receiving the 2017 information in advance of the public, allowing you to secure the best benefits for your dollars.

 

Pride’s street fair will take place Saturday, June 3, on West Nine Mile Road, Allen Street and West Troy Street in downtown Ferndale. Pride also hosts parties and events for weeks leading up to the street fair that will bring thousands of participants to Ferndale.  

 

For 2017, we have new sponsorship options available, including sober spaces, main and DJ stage options, and more opportunities to participate in the children’s area.
