Events Description

The Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train program is returning to the rails for 21stto raise money, food, and awareness for food banks and hunger issues across Canada and the United States.


Beginning in Montreal on November 25 and 26, two trains will make the festive journey, travelling through both the U.S. and Canada to bring holiday cheer to many communities along CP’s network. Each event is free, with CP encouraging attendees to open their cupboards and wallets to help address hunger needs in their communities. Local food banks will be accepting donations at each stop to ensure those less fortunate have enough healthy food this holiday season.

Holiday Train is about 1,000 feet in length with 14 rail cars decorated with hundreds of thousands of technology-leading LED lights and a modified boxcar that has been turned into a traveling stage for performers.

Free, Donations to local food bank appreciated.

    Having this event start at 5pm on a work day makes it very difficult for working families. It should have started later. And perhaps more stops should be considered as parking was ridiculous and took forver. Was rather disappointed.

    Gotta say I was disappointed this year. The train was 45 minutes late. It’s -20. + outside. Lots of kids crying waiting for an hour + for the train. We could see the train from further down and the kids would get excited only to lose sight of the train for 10 minutes or more. Once it Slowly and I mean slowly crept into the station I left. If was already 8:30 and I had been outside since 715. Didn’t stay for the entertainment. Great event if it stuck to its schedule. CN I felt like I was on 50 th street at 3 pm waiting for the trains to change tracks.
