Canadian Pacific (CP) is proud to announce the performer lineup and schedule for the 2019 CP Holiday Train program. Entering its 21st year, the CP Holiday Train uses music and community spirit to raise money and generate healthy food donations for food banks in communities along CP’s network. Since 1999, the program has helped raise C$15.8 million and collect 4.5 million pounds of food. The CP Holiday Train will be stopping in Austin December 6th at 5:00 pm.
“The CP Holiday Train is a program that our 13,000-strong CP family has immense pride in bringing to communities every year,” said Keith Creel, CP President and CEO. “Access to nutritious food is a basic necessity, and food bank usage is on the rise across North America. The CP Holiday Train program is our way to help in the fight against hunger by growing awareness of this issue and providing a fun and engaging way for the public to show their support.”
Beginning in Montreal on Nov. 25 and 26, two trains make their festive journeys, travelling through the U.S. and Canada, respectively. Once again, the CP Holiday Train features a star-studded lineup of country, R&B and pop musicians.
Acadian folk-music group Vishtèn will perform at all stops in Quebec, the starting point for both trains.
After kicking off the program in Quebec, Alan Doyle and Beautiful Band will travel along CP’s mainline to perform 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, Alta. on Dec. 18.
