The 21st edition of the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will travel across Canada this holiday season and will be making its annual stop in Calgary this weekend.

This year, two trains will be travelling through the US and Canada to bring holiday cheer to hundreds of communities and collect donations for local food banks.

The US train departed from Montreal on November 25 and features performances from Alan Doyle and Beautiful Band in communities in New York and southern Ontario.

Meghan Patrick, Tanika Charles, and Kelly Prescott will pick up the tour in Chicago and finish the train’s journey back to Canada with the final show in Gleichen, Alberta on December 18.
