Each spring, we gear up to produce a Ferndale Enterprise Souvenir Edition. We deliver 18,000 copies to Ferndale and area businesses just before the summer tourist season gets underway. Throughout the year, we replenish supplies as needed as well as make sure the popular tourist newspaper is placed at all area hotels and tourist stops, such as the Welcome Center in Arcata, the River Lodge Convention Center in Fortuna and stops south such as the Benbow Inn.
Our edition features Ferndale and the Eel River Valley’s history, tourist and cultural attractions. In addition, there’s a half-page Main Street Walking Tour and quarter-page city map. We also feature a map showing outlying attractions, as well as information about businesses and hotels in the city to the south of us – Fortuna.
Souvenir Editions are free and can be found at practically all businesses and inns/hotels in Ferndale. We also have a newsstand outside the Ferndale Enterprise office at 207 Francis Street. Reach in and help yourself! If you’d like us to mail you one, just send us $5 for postage and handling and we’ll pop one in an envelope for you.
Be part of the Souvenir Edition
The Ferndale Enterprise is a great way for local businesses to tell their stories, either through an editorial-style feature and photo or by a traditional display ad. Our deadlines for copy are at the end of April each year. We make deliveries of our finished edition to all local businesses on the Friday before Memorial Day. If you’d like more information on how to be a part of the Souvenir Edition, shoot us an email or give us a call. Rates are below.
