I am co owner of Detroit Respect clothing company and we have been a proud vendor of the Ferndale Pride for the past five years. It is by far our favorite event of the year and something we look forward too. The coordinators are by far some of the nicest people we have had the pleasure working with and the volunteers are always smiling and asking how they can help us. The people who have put on the event and the people in attendance have been like a family for us and can’t wait for the 2019 Pride

Just wanted to say Thank you again for inviting Finch Finery back to Ferndale Pride. This festival is our favorite. Everyone is so incredibly kind and positive. We love seeing happy people being themselves. Products we have purchased and worn outside of the festival bring us many compliments and open many positive discussions and greetings. Thanks again! - The feather girls.
