About The Venue

If you’ve never been to The Kenan House Gallery in Lockport before, you’re in for a treat. The historic 1800’s Victorian mansion and beautifully landscaped grounds will serve as a gorgeous backdrop for Music In The Gardens, providing attendees with a one-of-a-kind experience. 

The house features a side covered porch that will serve as the stage for the musical acts, so all attending will have a clear view from the front lawn on Locust Street. And if rain is in the forecast— don’t worry! The event can be moved to the 150-seated Taylor Theater indoors. 

The Kenan House Gallery will also be open during event hours for free admission to the public, along with access to indoor bathrooms. Head inside to check out one of the premier facilities in the Buffalo Niagara region for arts, education, and recreation programming. 


VIP Beer Garden Tickets Available

While the Music In The Gardens concert series is completely free for all members of the community to enjoy, there will also be an optional $10 ticket available for those interested in taking part in the VIP Beer Garden.
