Carseland, AB is a community in the county of Wheatland, which is approximately 70 kilometers Southeast of Calgary, AB. The Bow River, a 587 km river that begins in the Rocky Mountains, flows through Carseland and provides the community with a variety of water activities and draws visitors from all over who are looking to fish or relax. There are just over 500 residents of Carseland. The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) was extremely instrumental in bringing settlers to the area in the early 1900s. In 1913, the CPR began construction on a rail line through Carseland that is still in use today. Because of this rail line, Carseland continued to grow and prosper during the 1920s-1940s.
One of the most popular community events in Carseland is Aggie Days. Every year towards the end of June, the Carseland and District Community Association and Agricultural Society organizes Aggie Days. Carseland Aggie Days embraces the region’s rich history rooted in agriculture and has events that are great for the entire family. Aggie Days features a parade, vendors, food, games, and in 2018 the first annual bull riding competition, Bull-A-Rama, was put on by the Bull Riders Canada organization.
Nutrien participates in Carseland Aggie Days by bringing our “Seed Survivor” trailer out amidst all the festivities. The “Seed Survivor” trailer offers children the opportunity to plant a seed and learn all about how fertilizer will help the seed grow into a beautiful flower. Aggie Days is a great event put on by the community and encourages those to get out and enjoy a day of family fun while embracing the rich agricultural history held by Carseland.
