Holiday Train with Alan Doyle & The Beautiful Band
December 12, 2017 @ 9:45 am - 7:00 pm
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.

ALAN DOYLE AND THE BEAUTIFUL BAND
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.
****WHAT TO DONATE****
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.
****SPREAD THE WORD****
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.
