SF’s 12 ft. Tall “Sugar Castle” 2022 at the Westin St. Francis (Nov. 23-Jan. 2)

The Westin St. Francis Executive Pastry Chef Jean-François Houdré will unveil his signature 12-feet rotating holiday sugar castle in the Landmark Lobby of The Westin St. Francis on Wednesday, November 23, 2022 at 11:00 am.

This annual holiday tradition began in 2005 with the stunning Medieval Sugar Castle, a life-like French Chateau that becomes more extravagant with each passing year. In past years, the castle has been over 12 feet tall and used over 600 lbs. of sugar.

Resembling a French Chateau from Chef Houdre’s hometown of Bordeaux, the castle weighs more than 1200 pounds and features more than 20 grand circular towers, approximately 30 rooms, illuminated windows, and is surrounded by a quaint village and running train.
