Kirriemuir has a hall, a small general store with a post office and gas station, a playground, and two ball diamonds.

One of the more popular events each year is the annual discing bonspiel, which is held at the Kirriemuir Hall. An older Alberta Wheat Pool grain elevator remains standing at the edge of town and it is still in use, but by private owners as the railroad tracks have long since been removed.
