MILWAUKEE — The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will be back in Wisconsin for its annual Christmas and music-themed tour of Canada and parts of the US in 2023.

Stops include Columbus, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin Dells, Portage, Caledonia, Hartland and Oconomowoc.

The holiday train raises money for a good cause, too. According to their website:

The 2023 CPKC Holiday Train tours Canada and the United States Nov. 20 through Dec. 19, raising money, food and awareness for the important work that food banks do in their communities. Professional musicians play free concerts from the brightly decorated train's stage. CPKC makes a donation to the local food shelf at each stop and encourages attendees to also donate.

Since its inception in 1999, the CPKC Holiday Train has raised more than $22.5 million and more than 5 million pounds of food for community food banks across North America.

Learn more on their website here (including the musicians playing during the tour).
