The Canadian Holiday Train Is Making 7 Stops In Quebec Today And Tomorrow Only

These are the only two nights you'll be able to check out the train.
The Canadian Holiday Train Is Making 7 Stops In Quebec Today And Tomorrow Only
  • It's that time of year! The CF Holiday Train is making its way around Quebec during the next two days!
  • At each of their seven stops near Montreal, there will be festive shows going on and lots of food to go around.
  • Find out where and when you can see the train below!

It's been less than a month since the Canadian Pacific CP Holiday Train announced its full schedule and we've been counting down the days until the most festive of trains was making its stops in Montreal. And finally, the days have come. Today and tomorrow, November 25 and 26, before the two trains begin their U.S. and Canadian journeys and depart Montreal, they will be hosting their highly-anticipated free shows. 

The Holiday Trains are 1,000 foot (each) celebration of all things Christmas with hundreds of thousands of lights decorating 14 rail cars, boxcars that open up as travelling stages, and free music - but that's not all they are.

CP uses the train to "raise money and generate healthy food donations for food banks in communities along [its] network." The trains have raised nearly $16 million and collected 4.5 million pounds of food since 1999. 

Anyone interested in attending the concerts is asked to bring a donation of heart-healthy foods for their local food bank. The CP Holiday Train's goal is to ensure everyone has access to healthy and nutritious food. 

This year looks like it will be bigger than ever with popular performer lineups of country, R&B and pop musicians.

The U.S. train heads out a day earlier than its Canadian cousin and you can catch one of five shows it will be hosting in Quebec tonight before it continues on to New York.

Make sure to double-check the schedule for times, each show only lasts about an hour and a half. 

Tonight you'll be able to catch Canadian musician Alan Doyle and his Beautiful Band playing country-tinged, popular tunes.

As the train keeps on its tour, musicians Meghan Patrick, Tanika Charles, and Kelly Prescott will pick up the tour in Chicago.

The Canadian Train will be making its way west, but before it departs the Montreal West EXO commuter station, you'll be able to catch artists Scott Helman and Madeline Merlo performing along with Acadian folk-music group Vishtèn. The show starts at 7 p.m. and only runs for 30 minutes, so don't be late!

The train will also make one more Quebec stop on November 26 at the ​​Beaconsfield EXO commuter station from 8:30 p.m. until 9 p.m.

The Holiday Trains bring out thousands of fans, young and old to see the Christmas decor, listen to some great free music and help out a good cause. It's a win for everyone involved.
