Canadian Pacific Holiday Train, Oconomowoc
December 4, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
We are so excited the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train in Oconomowoc is back in 2023.
The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train arrives in downtown Oconomowoc on Monday, December 4th at 6:40pm with the show from 6:45 – 7:15pm.
The train will stop at the Silver Lake Street crossing downtown. Do not forget your donations for the Oconomowoc Area Food Pantry.
*Please note that it is common for the train to be behind schedule. Therefore, bundle up and prepare for a wait – bring snacks, a drink of water, some money to purchase hot cocoa from the youth, and winter gear.
*St. Paul Church will be offering hot cocoa and cookies for sale up front by the tracks and entertainment car location at the Silver Lake crossing.
*18 Acres will have a food truck serving yummy dinner options for all ages. They will also be parked close to the main event. 18 Acres will be donating a portion of sales to the City of Oconomowoc Police Department K-9 Officer program. Police staff will be on site with information about the program.
See the map of closures, which will start as early as 3 pm HERE.
Canadian Pacific’s Holiday Train will return this year after a two year pandemic-related hiatus. The train will again raise money, food, and awareness for local food banks in communities along the CP network – including, for the first time, stops in Maine and Quebec along the former Central Maine & Quebec.
This year’s performers will include Alan Doyle, Tenille Townes, Mackenzie Porter and Lindsay Ell. Details about this year’s artists and which performers will play which shows are available at the event website.
Holiday Train shows are free to attend. CP asks attendees to bring a cash or non-perishable food donation if they’re able. Local food shelves will set up collection stations at each event, with all donations made staying with the local food bank to help people in need in the community. Because local food shelves buy food at a discount, cash donations can go further than food donations to help those in need.
