Carmangay: History lives here

As Vulcan County’s oldest community, Carmangay is rich in history.

Its historical appeal offers a little something for everyone — amateur explorers, history buffs and those looking for a nice day out.

With its many historical buildings — the Carmangay Fire Hall, the Grange Hotel and the Carmangay United Church — the village is the perfect backdrop for a day of exploring.

Nearby lie the Carmangay Tipi Rings and the historic wooden Canadian Pacific trestle, which crosses the windy Little Bow River and rolling coulees north of the village.

Close your eyes and you can almost hear the train.

This summer, don’t forget to check out Carmangay’s annual Firemen’s Barbecue, Mini Rodeo, and Sports Day and Agricultural Fair on July 31-Aug. 1, when the true community spirit comes alive.

Put your explorers gear on and get ready for a day — or more — in Carmangay.
