The famous Farmers’ Market is open each Saturday from mid-June to the end of September, from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The Millarville Christ Church is a century-old spruce log Anglican church in the rolling hills.
The Millarville Race Track has been holding horse races since 1905!
Annual events include the Millarville Rodeo (end of May), the Millarville Races (end of June), the Flower Festival (end of July), Priddis and Millarville Fair (mid August), the Millarville Art Market (mid October).
Many beautiful acreages have been built in the Millarville region but many large ranches still exist here providing a real flavour of true Western living.
The hamlet of Millarville is very pretty and provides locals with amenities and a small country town atmosphere. This too is a high value real estate area to buy in. Driving time to Calgary from here is about 30 to 40 minutes.
