McBride is a village in Montcalm County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 205 at the 2010 census. The village is located within Day Township. The post office for the village, with ZIP code 48852, is named "McBrides" and provides P.O. Box service to the village.

The village is named for Alexander B McBride, a settler from Wayne County, New York, who built a sawmill there in 1874. A railroad station was named "McBride's Mill", while the post office named "McBrides" opened on March 26, 1878 with McBride as the first postmaster. The village was platted by D. L. Jacobs in 1877. An adjacent settlement was platted with the name "Custer" by Phipps Wado on April 2, 1878, but it became a part of McBride when that village was incorporated in 1883.
