The new Ferndale PATIO Zones launch on May 6 so you can “Pay and Take It Outside!” Come grab a drink in an official Ferndale PATIO Zone cup and stroll around downtown.

Ferndale PATIO Zones are a great way to support our local bars and restaurants and stay socially distanced. Our biodegradable cups have been generously sponsored by Jim Schaffer & Associates. This means more of your money goes directly to the businesses!

PATIO Zones are simple…

  1. Buy a beverage (beer, wine, or cocktails) from any participating business in an official PATIO Zone cup
  2. Stay in the zone where you bought the drink.
  3. Avoid a party foul by following the rules

eight amazing businesses are kicking off the PATIO Zones this weekend!!

The Executive Director of the Ferndale DDA is excited about potential for this program to help small businesses recover from the pandemic. “Ferndale is relying on the public to follow guidelines and drink responsibility. PATIO Zones are simple – you only drink from an official cup, don’t cross Woodward, and stay within the zone where you bought your drink. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy… into a cocktail!”

PATIO Zones will be evaluated during the first few months to ensure downtown stays safe and clean for everyone. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Lena Stevens, Ferndale DDA Executive Director: [email protected].

Visitors to downtown Ferndale can also get unique gifts for Mother’s Day, get amazing dine-in or carry-out food, or treat themselves to some self-care. There’s more to Ferndale than meets the eye and you belong here.
