CP Holiday Train with The Trews and Willy Porter

6:30 PM - 7:15 PM

Location:
Main Street Railroad Crossing Downtown Minot, ND

The Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train will soon set out once again to entertain hundreds of thousands of people, celebrating 20 years of collecting food and raising funds for food banks across North America. 

The CP Holiday Train program launched in 1999 and has since raised more than C$14.5 million and gathered 4.3 million pounds of food for communities along CP's routes in Canada and the United States. Every pound and dollar raised at each stop stays with the local food bank to help feed those in need in that community.

All events are free. We just ask event attendees to bring money or a heart-healthy donation for their local food bank.

The train will arrive at the scheduled event time and depart immediately after the show. Please give yourself extra time getting to the event to compensate for crowds and traffic. Also make sure to keep a safe distance of 50 feet away from the train while it’s moving so we can safely continue our journey. If you spot unsafe behaviour, alert a police officer.

Media are encouraged to attend the event. Requests to speak to a CP spokesperson should be sent to Alert_MediaRelations@cpr.ca. The train will arrive prior to the event start time and depart immediately thereafter.

CP is also encouraging fans of the train to donate heart-healthy food, as everyone should have access to healthy, nutritious food, regardless of circumstances. This supports the mission of CP Has Heart, a program dedicated to improving the heart health of men, women and children in North America. To date, this program has raised over C$15 million for cardiac care and research.
