The primary goal of the FDA is to initiate and support activities that help revitalize the economy, appearance and image of downtown Ferndale using the National Main Street Center’s 4-point approach:
- Economic Restructuring
The Ferndale Downtown Association (“FDA”) was founded 5 years ago for the purpose of promoting a healthy and vibrant downtown city core. Our primary geographic area is Main Street, between the Pioneer Bridge (Nooksack River) and the new Ferndale Library.
We sponsor or serve at several downtown events throughout the year including Spring Clean-up Day, The Pumpkin Festival, and the Old Fashioned Christmas and tree lighting. These projects are supported through member dues and donations (we are a qualified IRS 501(c) group).
