Canterbury Village is a truly unique setting and has been designated an historical landmark in the state of Michigan. It covers an area extending over 21 acres and is host to 18 specialty shops including the 90,000 sq. ft. Aldridge’s Always Christmas, one of the largest and most unique Christmas stores anywhere! The main facilities were built with olde world craftsmanship with rich, luxurious quality and ornate furnishings. Materials used throughout the village include oak paneling and carvings from France, European armor, tapestries and an antique stained glass window from Scotland. The antique fireplace in the King’s Court Castle was shipped from England and creates an olde world ambiance.
One and all are invited to visit Canterbury Village for Michigan’s only all Corvette show held in such a beautiful setting. Bring the kids and come spend the day with us and take in some of the area’s most memorable Corvettes, the unique shopping opportunities, and the free Jazz concert.
