Purchase a VIP Ticket for hot chocolate bar and warming lounge prior to the show plus reserved section closest to the stage.
The CP Holiday Train is North America’s longest rolling food bank fundraiser and since it started in 1999, the program has raised close to $15.8 million and 4.5 million pounds of food. Over the three weeks of the program, musicians will play more than 150 concerts from a boxcar turned into a traveling stage. The concerts are free, but you are encouraged to bring a donation for the Merrick Community Services Food Shelf — either a non-perishable food item or a cash donation. Everyone’s contributions will directly assist those in need in our community.
