A Kansas City holiday tradition

From marveling at one of Kansas City's favorite pieces of Christmas nostalgia, EBT Laughing Santa, to lacing up your skates at the Ice Terrace, Downtown Kansas City’s outdoor ice-skating rink, create lasting memories at Crown Center.

Kick off the holiday season with the arrival of Kansas City’s 100-foot Mayor’s Christmas Tree and experience the magic of thousands of white lights on Crown Center Square. Then bring the family to Santa’s Gingerbread Station to snap a picture with jolly ol’ Saint Nick, while social distancing, of course.

Bring your family or friends to The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center and be in the center of it all. With all of your favorite holiday traditions in one place, it’s hard not to get into the spirit of the season!
