Every year, the CPR's Holiday Trains travel through Canadian and American communities, raising food and cash donations for food banks.

Think of them as brightly-decorated railcars full of Christmas cheer. The Holiday Trains make stops in communities across our service area, offering free concerts and seasonal festivities from a boxcar we've turned into a travelling stage.

The concerts are free, but you're encouraged to make a donation to the local food bank—either a non-perishable food item or a cash donation. All contributions will stay within your local community.
