Canadian Pacific Holiday Train
The Canadian Pacific Holiday train is arriving Friday, November 30th at 8:50pm at the VIA Train Station downtown on Elgin Street.

The Holiday Train travels Canada and the US, decorated with thousands of Christmas lights, in order to collect food and funds for the local foodbanks of the communities it visits. At each city the train visits the Holiday Train provides a box car stage and line-up of great musical talent. Sudbury will be welcoming the talent of Terri Clark, Sierra Noble and Kelly Prescott with the performance happening from 9:15pm - 9:45pm.

From 10am – 3pm, on the first three Saturdays of December, the team from Downtown Sudbury would like to invite you to visit our office at 115 Larch Street (St Andrew’s Building) to receive a free gift on behalf of our downtown businesses.

Customers with an accumulated $75(before tax) in receipts from downtown businesses, dated on or after Saturday, November 17th, are eligible for the gift.
