Canada's magical Christmas train returning to Metro Vancouver this year

Oct 17 2019, 3:50 pm

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

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 departs 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.


The Canadian train departs Montreal on November 26 and follows CP’s tracks west to Vancouver.

Performing free concerts from Montreal to Calgary are Scott Helman and Madeline Merlo. CP Holiday Train favourite Terri Clark will join the train in Calgary with another talented musician to be announced later, wrapping up in the Vancouver area on December 17.
