Canadian Pacific Holiday Train to make its annual visit to Kahnawake


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) is pleased to announce that Canadian Pacific’s Holiday Train will make its eighth visit to Kahnawà:ke in what has become an annual tradition in the community.

Beautifully decorated with thousands of colored lights, the train is scheduled to arrive at the Adirondack Junction around 6:45pm on Tuesday, 27 Kentenhkó:wa/November. There will be half-hour musical show featuring The Claytones and Canadian Country Music Hall of Famer Tracey Brown. Volunteers will be on site to accept donations and to distribute hot chocolate, hot dogs and glow sticks.

The Kahnawà:ke Christmas Basket Committee will be the recipient of monetary donations while food items will be donated to the Kahnawà:ke Food Bank from those attending the event and Canadian Pacific. Over the past decade the Holiday Train has raised well over $5 million and two million pounds of food for local food banks.

To reduce traffic volume in the area, the MCK is encouraging the use of a free Shuttle Bus service provided. Two buses will depart from the town garage at 5:45pm to bring passengers to the Adirondack Junction and return after the event. Visit for a map of the shuttle bus route.
