Ferndale is the benchmark for a modern community that embraces the richness of diversity and brings inclusive hospitality to life.

Centered on the iconic intersection of Woodward & Nine, Downtown Ferndale is a geographic designation, a favorite destination and a mindset that embraces the diversity of culture, class and creativity.  Within its 3.9 linear miles encompassing Nine Mile Road from Paxton to Pinecrest and Woodward from Marshall to Oakridge, are 350+ businesses, most owned and operated by inspired entrepreneurs, driven by a personal passion to deliver goods and services in engagingly unique ways.

The district is managed and marketed by the Ferndale Downtown Development Authority, operating as the economic development engine utilizing a multi-platform approach to revitalizing the Downtown.  Over the past decade plus, the DDA’s work has helped to establish Downtown Ferndale as favorite local and regional destination, known for its shopping and entertainment, a 30+piece collection of public art, intimate pedestrian alleys and pocket parks, inviting streetscapes, comfortably wide sidewalks and walk signs that stop traffic with a push of a button.

  • It is bike-friendly, equipped with six on-street bike parking corrals and another 30 single loops for easy sidewalk lock up.
  • It is walkable with pedestrians guided by an extensive wayfinding system and streetscapes enhanced by public seating, colorful flowering baskets and ample lighting.
  • It is auto-friendly, with more than 1,000 parking spots on-street and in lots, serviced by easy-to-use multi-space pay stations.

Throughout the year, Downtown Ferndale is the venue for a myriad of events that reflect its all inclusive status – from Ferndale Pride in early June to a fave doggie event —  Fido Does Ferndale in October.  It serves up a traditional, slightly quirky, Holiday Ice Festival, is home to two great art fairs  – DIY Street Fair & Funky Ferndale Art Fair; and was the birthplace of the ongoing Woodward Dream Cruise.

Downtown Ferndale is an award-winning district and consistently honored by Main Street Oakland County.  It received national recognition in 2010 when the district won the Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA) from the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s National Main Street Program.  Downtown Ferndale was the first city in Oakland County to receive the national recognition and only the third to be so honored in the state.  The GAMSA considers the cumulative results of sustainable programs, and in the case of Downtown Ferndale, it recognized what has become the district’s ongoing mantra — “Change is Good”.  We hope you make time to make that discovery yourself.  Welcome to Downtown Ferndale!
