Canadian Pacific Holiday Train | Twin Cities Area Stops

The 2023 Canadian Pacific holiday train is back! Holiday Train shows are free to attend. CP asks attendees to bring a cash or non-perishable food donation if they’re able. Local food shelves will set up collection stations at each event, with all donations made staying with the local food bank to help people in need in the community.

Since the Holiday Train began in 1999, $22.5 million and more than 5 million pounds pounds of food for food banks across North America.

“Food banks and communities across Canada are so excited to see the CP Holiday Train return, as it brings together the City of Calgary to kick off the holidays and give back at the same time,” said Calgary Food Bank President and CEO James McAra. “The Calgary Food Bank is so grateful for CP’s continued support to help us build a Canada where no one goes hungry.”

With the absence of the train last year, many communities found alternatives to help donate to local food banks.

This is the Holiday Train’s 25th year.
