Making a difference, one stop at a time
The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train hits the rails again in November, visiting over 150 communities across our network. Musicians traveling aboard the trains will play more than 150 free concerts from their boxcar stage.

Gates open at 4:00 p.m., concert begins at 5:00 p.m.
Prior to each concert, these communities will be able to experience The North Pole Station, a magical village which will feature family-oriented interactive activities, ice carving, hot chocolate and a chance for the kids to visit Santa before making their way to the concert stage.
