The Alpine Village Mainsteet


Gaylord, Michigan's Alpine Village, enjoys a long-standing tradition of independently owned shops which means excellent variety and unique offerings for the shopper.

Owners take pride in handpicking the items on their shelves and put their reputation behind what they sell. As a result, service is top-notch in our small shops, where the owner often assists you in finding what you need. 

Downtown Gaylord is home to a wide variety of shops, restaurants, services and more — all housed in a quaint, Alpine-themed village.

Join us for concerts, the farmers market, sidewalk sales, Alpenfest, and many great events throughout the year. Our Pavilion on Court is the venue for musical entertainment and more.
