The event is free, but organizers accepted cash or healthy food donations to help support local food shelves. This stop is presented by East Side Neighborhood Services!

Do we ride the train?
No one rides the train and no tickets are needed. When the train arrives a 30 minute concert takes place from a car on the train, featuring Meghan Patrick, Tanika Charles and Kelly Prescott!

The Holiday Train’s estimated arrival is 8:00 pm. The concert from the train will only be viewable from the north side of the tracks. Once the train pulls in, it will not be possible to cross to the other side of the tracks.
Do we have to buy tickets?
The event is free, but we suggest a $5+ gift to East Side Neighborhood Services food shelves. You can also text TRAIN to 91999 to donate beforehand or at the event!
