The train arrives at 7:45 pm
The Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train will return to the rails this season on its first cross-continent tour in three years, following virtual concerts in the pandemic years of 2020 and 2021. The train will again raise money, food, and awareness for Hamilton Food Share, in support of local food banks in Hamilton.
On November 29, 2022, the 1,000-foot CP Holiday Train, with 14 brightly decorated rail cars, will stop on the railway tracks across from Gage Park at 42 Lawrence Road at 7:45 pm.
Aboard the train will be Canadian country music stars Lindsay Ell and JoJo Mason, who will play a mix of traditional and modern holiday-themed songs to get your family into the spirit of the season at this free, family-friendly concert event for all ages from 8 pm to 8:40 pm.
Hamilton Food Share will be collecting food and cash donations. Be sure to bring along non-perishable food contributions such as tuna, beans, rice, pasta, cereal and baby food to the event.
Since the Holiday Train program launched in 1999, it's raised more than $21 million and collected 5 million pounds of food for community food banks across North America.
