The Democrat will be the first president to be at the Kennedy Center Honors since 2016.
The Trumps also scrapped a traditional White House ceremony for the honorees, which Biden is resuming.
Presidents usually host a lighthearted gathering with the honorees at the White House before the awards ceremony.
