Ferndale is a city located in Humboldt County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 1,382.

The paintings of the local artist, Lavinia Stephens (1924-), were sold in the local co-op gallery in downtown Ferndale. Her works were famous for their depiction of northern Californian coastlines, redwood forests, and the Bridgeville Bridge.

Ferndale is known for well-preserved Victorian buildings. It is also the endpoint of the annual Kinetic sculpture race as well as being the town where the first race began when [1] Hobart Brown was challenged to race his odd-looking five-wheeled tricycle down Main Street on Mother's Day, 1969 by local sculptor Jack Mays.

Ferndale is a popular film location and is featured in movies like "The Majestic" with Jim Carrey, and "Outbreak" starring Dustin Hoffman.
