Ferndale’s annual ode to the “Do It Yourself” ethos turns 10. In a return to the setup from past years, the DIY Fest, held on the east side of Woodward, will be joined this year with the Funky Ferndale Art Fair, held across the street on the west side — making for a formidable arts and craft double-whammy. The Funky Ferndale Art Fair is more of a traditional art fair — think sculptures, paintings, jewelry, and ceramics. Meanwhile, the DIY Fest is a little more offbeat — as in past years, you’ll find screenprinted posters, T-shirts, and even stained-glass night lights. Combined, both fests provide the perfect place to find handmade, one-of-a-kind gifts.
DIY Street Fair takes place on Woodward Avenue at Troy St.; See diystreetfair.com for more info and hours. The Funky Ferndale Art Fair is held at Nine Mile Rd. at Woodward Ave.; See funkyferndaleartfair.com for more info and hours.
