With its many historical buildings — the Carmangay Fire Hall, the Grange Hotel and the Carmangay United Church — this 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.
If you want to stay a while, there’s a campground, which now features Wi-FI for paid campers.
This summer, don’t forget to check out Carmangay’s annual Firemen’s Barbecue on Aug. 5, and the annual Sports Day and Agricultural Fair on Aug. 6, when the true community spirit comes alive.
