Cost: Donations Strongly Encouraged

The Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train will set out once again to entertain hundreds of thousands of people, celebrating more than 20 years of collecting food and raising funds for food banks across North America.

Beginning in Montreal on Nov. 25, two trains will make the festive journey, traveling through both the U.S. and Canada to bring holiday cheer to dozens of 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. At each event, the Holiday Train provides a box car stage, a lineup of great musical talents, and a corporate contribution to the local food bank.

Attendees, in turn, are encouraged to donate food and funds, all of which stays in the community.
