Ten local restaurants will be participating in the city’s first “Taste of Ferndale” strolling dinner event on “Fat Tuesday,” Feb. 24. Tickets for the benefit are $30 per person and support the Ferndale Community Foundation.
The Taste of Ferndale takes place at Via Nove restaurant on West Nine Mile Road.
The fundraiser will showcase some of Ferndale’s popular and diverse restaurants in one location, enabling attendees to sample choice selections from each one. The restaurants are all donating tasty selections from among their favorite menu items.
Participating restaurants include Pete’s Place, Emory, Assaggi Bistro, Anita’s Kitchen, Christine’s Cuisine, The Flytrap, Via Nove, Howe’s Bayou, Starving Artists and the Blue Nile.
There are restaurants of many types and styles in this little town,” said Dan Martin, Ferndale Community Foundation Chair, “and this event allows folks to sample all kinds of great fare from a variety of these popular destinations.”
The Ferndale Community Foundation was formed six years ago and funds local projects and charitable efforts in art, culture, education and youth programs. It has distributed over $30,000 in the past several years to fund downtown murals, the “Crow’s Nest” sculpture, youth camps, music in the parks, and other efforts to increase the quality of life in Ferndale.
Tickets can be purchased from Board Members and through the Web site at or by calling 248-672-4067.
The event will also feature a silent auction and an afterglow with live music at Howe’s Bayou on Woodward Avenue also in downtown Ferndale.
