Our mission is to:
Preserve and enhance America's first public beach for the enjoyment of all.
Hosted by the Revere Beach Partnership, a non-profit organization, this free event is open to the public and draws crowds from all around the world. Over three days, hundreds of thousands of people venture down the event boardwalk and take in the sculptures, beach, entertainment, fireworks, and food!
The Revere Beach Partnership will be celebrating the 19th Annual International Sand Sculpting Festival, hosted at America’s first public beach, Revere Beach, from Friday, July 28th through Sunday, July 30th. This year we will be celebrating 90 years of Kong, our theme for 2023, and will feature beautiful sand sculptures designed by world-class sculptors, food trucks, and food vendors with cuisines from around the world, live entertainment, and a Saturday Night Fireworks Extravaganza!
Revere Beach Partnership is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in 2001.
Preserve and enhance America’s first public beach for the enjoyment of all. The partnership is made up of a volunteer board that shares a love for Revere and Revere Beach.
Revere’s 3-mile crescent beach, America’s first public beach, is a beautiful natural resource located in an urban area. Half a century ago, Revere Beach thrived as a recreational hub. Over the years, people stopped coming to Revere Beach, and the beach slid into decline. Realizing that something must be done to save this precious resource, a Revere Beach Citizens Planning charrette was held in 2001. From that charrette, the Revere Beach Partnership was formed.
The Partnership consists of an Executive Director, a volunteer Board of Directors, and many other committed volunteers that share a love for Revere Beach. Our flagship event is the Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival (ISSF), now in its 18th year. Funds raised during the ISSF are used to fund our efforts and family events throughout the remainder of the year; including establishing a capital plan to fund major improvement projects that aim to strengthen the fabric of the Revere Beach community.
