Can’t-Miss Northern Michigan Events

What is the best part of winter? Is it the way frost blankets the trees early in the morning? Or is it all of the fun activities you can only do when the lakes freeze and the ground accumulates powder? At Garland Lodge, we love all things winter, but our absolute favorite has to be the Michigan festivals and events. That’s why we host so many northern Michigan events during the winter season! Here’s the scoop on the best upcoming events in Michigan right here at Garland Lodge.

Gaylord, MI, Events with Food

There’s nothing like a hot plate of food on a cold winter evening, and Garland Lodge has the best chefs in town. Whether you’re from the Gaylord, MI, area or are traveling here for a northern Michigan vacation, our culinary events will blow you away. Our most popular northern Michigan event is the Nordic Nibble & Nosh, which is an annual series of themed meals. Examples of themes include carnival, Olympic, and Mardi Gras. The thing they all have in common, though, is deliciously filling Nordic food.

Twice a year, we go all out on a Polish buffet. The meal is full of authentic Polish dishes, and our expert chefs prepare them by hand, on-site. These Gaylord, MI, events usually sell out, so get your tickets ASAP!

Northern Michigan Events Outdoors

If you love the snow as much as we do, you’ll want to get outside and enjoy it during your northern Michigan vacation. Garland Lodge offers classic winter activities in Michigan, such as cross country skiing and snowmobiling. We also offer snow-filled northern Michigan events, such as horse-drawn sleigh rides and fish camps.

Our sleigh rides take you on an enchanting journey through our 3,000-acre winter wonderland. You’ll enjoy hot cocoa throughout the trip. You won’t find the same level of tranquility anywhere else, which is what makes our winter activities in Michigan so special.

Our fish camps are all about sportsmanship. You’ll ski out to the campsite before going ice fishing and playing winter golf. We also play bowling and badminton on the ice. We’ll supply a chili dinner, hot cocoa, coffee, and adult beverages. These fish camps are the most exciting Gaylord, MI, events all winter long!
