Donalda Attractions & Events

 Donalda is home to the Worlds Largest Lamp replica. This replica stands 42 ft high and over looks the Meeting Creek Coulee and lights up at dusk each and every night. The lamp is open for viewing during Museum hours and was designed to complement the Donalda Outstanding Lamp Collection in the Donalda & District Museum which currently has over 1,100 lamps dating back to the 1600. 

The Donalda Museum consists of the Railway Station and the Imperial Bank Building.  The Canadian Railways Station was originally built in 1909 and then restored in 1991-92 to its original condition. The station is open during the summer or by appointment by contacting the Donalda & District Museum.  The historical Bank building was built in 1932 by the Imperial Bank of Commerce and was running until 1997 when it was then donated to the Donalda Museum to preserve its unique agriculture and local history. Currently inside houses the Donalda Art Gallery and is available for viewing during Museum hours. 

Watch for the Donalda Coulee Show & Shine in August and the Canada Day Celebration.  In early December check out the Christmas Village Market.


Donalda has a fully serviced campground that is available all year round as well as a beautiful chalet at Willow Canyon that can be privately rented all year round. The children love this unique spot for tobogganing, hiking, and attending drive in movies.

Willow Canyon Coulee Hiking Trail connects Donalda with 129 acres of pristine coulee land known as Willow Canyon to the North of the Village. These 129 Acres offer amazing views from the rim of the coulee, and you are able to explore unmarked trails throughout the valley of the badlands, within the property boundaries. The trailhead is located just north of the Worlds Largest Lamp. Maps can be found at the Village Office.
