In 1999 the CP Holiday Train was launched and has, over the years, raised over $14.5 million! Plus it has collected more than 4 million pounds of food!
The funds and food collected go to communities in Canada and the United States.
There are Two Holiday Trains in Canada
The Holiday Train 2018 is actually not one but two trains. The festive journey travels through Canada and the United States. It’s a great cause and a great show that’s also kid-friendly.
It’s FREE. Just give food or donate to help the less fortunate. Each stop along the route has local food banks that will accept the donations.
The Holiday Train rolls into Montreal on November 25 and the second on November 27 as they embark on their festive journey.
Last year, the 2017 Holiday Train featured Colin James. This year’s Holiday Train features entertainment by Terri Clark, Sierra Noble and Kelly Prescott. Even Santa is on board!
The 2018 US Holiday Train leaves Montreal on November 25 heading south. It stops at the Adirondack Junction/Kahnawake, St. Constant, Delson, St. Mathieu and Lacolle in Quebec, and also in New York and Southern Ontario. Then it’s off to the US and its final stop in Saskatchewan on December 16th.
The 2018 Canadian Holiday Train is in Montreal on November 27 and stops in Beaconsfield and Montreal West. Then it travels west through Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. Its final show of the tour is in Port Coquitlam on December 18.
