1920 • Layton City Centennial • 2020

The year 2020, marks the centennial anniversary of the incorporation of Layton City. Layton began as a small farming community that was an extension to the area that is now Kaysville, Utah. In 1920, Layton City was incorporated as its own town and over the next 100 years Layton City developed into the thriving metropolis it is today, and has grown to become the largest city in Davis County. In commemoration of the Layton City Centennial, the City is preparing for a fun-filled and event packed year to celebrate the last 100 years that shaped Layton City into a wonderful community.

Layton Birthday Party Under the Stars

After a great deal of thought and counsel with local emergency managers and staff, Layton City's Mayor and Council have provided the following guidance for the upcoming Layton City Centennial - Birthday Party Under the Stars event:

In coordination with the state and local public health official’s phased health guidelines and the Utah Leads Together 2.0 recommendations, and exercising an abundance of care for our residents' health and well-being, the Layton City Centennial - Birthday Party Under the Stars celebration event has been cancelled, effective May 1, 2020. This event has been re-scheduled for June of 2021.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding.
