8th Annual Alpenfrost
Welcome to the 8th Annual Alpenfrost!
For several years, Gaylord celebrated a Winterfest event, spearheaded by local business-men Jim Lappan and Dave Baragrey, that included an ice fishing derby, ice and snow sculpture events, kids games, contests and more. Alpenfrost is a rebirth and evolution of this exciting winter celebration in downtown Gaylord, combining anchor events such as The Frosty Plunge and a Craft Beer and Wine Festival at Treetops Resort, with a flurry of downtown activities, games and merchant sales. Worthy of vintage Norman Rockwell painting, the Alpine Village will unveil an open-air ice skating rink on the Courthouse lawn during Alpenfrost.
