Holiday Train with Colin James, Alan Doyle & The Beautiful Band | Anderson station | Saturday, 09. December 2017

The Canadian Pacific (CP) Holiday Train is set to close out Canada 150 with its biggest ever lineup of Canadian talent to date! Get ready to ring in the holidays with your community as it makes its 19th annual tour in an effort to raise money, food and awareness for local food banks.

Since its first tour in 1999, the train has raised more than C$13 million and four million pounds of food for communities along CP’s routes in Canada and the U.S. Every pound and dollar raised at each stop stays with the local food bank to help feed those in need in that community.

RSVP to this event today!


Anderson C-Train Station
South Lot



From the prairies of Saskatchewan to the stages of the world, sharing his talent with some of the greatest and most influential musicians of all time, Colin James has quietly and steadily established himself as one of Canada's greatest musicians.



Alan Doyle chalks up a lot of where is he right now to luck. But one listen to his latest album, "A Week at The Warehouse, makes it clear there's a lot more than luck at play. This album, recorded live with Doyle's "beautiful band," is filled with country-tinged, radio-ready tunes that bring the flavour of some of Doyle's favourite artists, from John Mellencamp to the Payolas.


**** TICKETS ****

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


The holidays are about giving, and we encourage people attending events to bring heart healthy donations. Heart health education and awareness is a tenet of CP's community investment program, CP Has Heart, which focuses on improving the heart health of men, women and children in communities across North America.







To help make this year the best yet for local food banks, the Holiday Train asks fans new and old to follow the train on social media, invite their friends and family and spread the message about the importance of heart-healthy donations by using #HealthyDonations.
