A full "100 years of fashions" show was held in 2016 at the newly remodeled Pioneer Pavilion. It was a fund raiser to buy needed 6' round tables that would be used for future rentals in the Pavilion. A 100 years of wedding dresses were also on display. This was an exclusive fashion show from the private collection of Louise Sager. There are no current plans for a full on show in 2017.

Pioneer Christmas Bazaar

November 11, 2017

In November 2013, the Heritage Society hosted the first Pioneer Christmas Bazaar. The event has grown to include not only arts and crafts in the Tillicum house, but now includes the log cabin church that only has "gently used" Christmas items and also includes vendors in the Pioneer Pavilion. You won't find better prices anywhere.

Society members and interested vendors need to contact Gail Nelson, 360-671-3377 to reserve a table.

Space is limited and table space is reserved on a first come first served basis. Vendors and members all agreed that this was one of the most enjoyable bazaars around.

Olde Fashioned Christmas

Olde Fashioned Christmas

December 1-3, 2017

Bring your camera, and step back in time this holiday season at the Olde Fashioned Christmas celebration in the historic cedar log cabins of Pioneer Park.

Members of the Ferndale Heritage Society don pioneer costumes to greet visitors of all ages as they experience how our ancestors enjoyed the Christmas holidays in these log homes. Each of the 12 cabins is decorated in a special theme to welcome visitors. The event includes hands-on crafts for children, old fashioned games, music and a working general store to purchase old fashioned Christmas gifts. Costumed hosts greet you in each cabin, and the smell of home-style baking, set the mood for the Christmas season.

With its serene theme and wooden pews, the log church is the perfect spot to sit a spell and reflect. Children will enjoy writing letters to Santa at the one-room school house and then mailing them at the historic post office. The sound of sleigh bells circulates through the park as visitors take a festive horse drawn carriage ride through downtown Ferndale.

Families are encouraged to take their own photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus. At the conclusion of the tour, stop by the Tillicum House for delicious cookies and warm beverages.
