Intimate venue. Every seat feels like an up close and personal experience with the performer.Jolene
We had the pleasure of attending the Chicago concert. What a fun and well organized event it was. The venue was clean and not overly crowded, even being a sold out show. A grand time was certainly had by all.Camille
We love this venue. Not a bad seat in the house!Jana
Worth the drive! Beautiful venue with tons of shade. There isn’t a bad seat in the house! The staff was very professional and accommodating, and we loved every part of the evening. Thanks for a lovely experience! Bravo!Becky
Small enough that it’s an intimate experience for all but still large enough for a crowd.Beth
The most exquisite concert-going experience anywhere. From ticket purchase to free parking to the gorgeous setting. The Kenley is my favorite venue…period!Jerry
In 1995, the Davis Arts Council partnered with Layton City, corporate sponsors, and private donors to build the Edward A. Kenley Centennial Amphitheater.
Since that time Davis Arts Council has proudly packed it each summer with some of the greatest talents of our time: Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Styx, and Olivia Newton John to name only a few. To view a history of concerts at the Kenley, visit our Season History Page.
We also feature dozens of local performers yearly and are proud to showcase the wealth of talent Utah has to offer.
The Kenley is right in the heart of Layton Park and can hold 1800 people at capacity. In addition to the serene landscaping and view of the mountains, you’ll also often see a flock of geese fly over. We like to think of the Kenley as one of the many gems of Layton.
If you’re interested in renting the amphitheater, contact Layton City Parks and Recreation at (801) 336-3900.
