The Mayor’s Christmas Tree in Kansas City will shine brightly on Crown Center Square from November 27, 2020 through January 3, 2021.
The annual Kansas City Mayor’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will be held as a virtual event at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 27, 2020 (the day after Thanksgiving).
Enjoy long-standing traditions that include the singing of Silent Night, presented this year by Calvin Arsenia, the countdown with Mayor Quinton Lucas as he prepares to flip the switch, and Joy to the World performed by Crown Brass. Plus, a special performance by Quixotic.
The ceremony will be broadcast on the Crown Center website and Facebook page.
The Mayor’s Christmas tree is made up of:
- 48,000+ LED lights
- 892 ball ornaments
- 100 snowflakes
- 300 bells (new this year!)
After the holidays, the wood from the Mayor’s Christmas Tree is made into commemorative ornaments, which are sold the following year to benefit the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund.
