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. In 2019, the event drew over an estimated 1 million attendees and has been a staple Summer event for so many for the past 16 years.
The Revere Beach Partnership will be celebrating the 17th Annual Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival, hosted at America’s first public beach, Revere Beach, on Friday, August 6th through Sunday, August 8th.
This year’s event will be a celebration of the 125th Anniversary of Revere Beach, America’s first public beach! The event will feature beautiful sand sculptures designed by the best sculptors in America. In addition, there will be food trucks, food vendors, exhibitors, and much more. The Partnership is also excited to bring back the Saturday Night Fireworks Extravaganza thanks to the generous support of the City of Revere and the sponsors of the event.
Revere Beach Partnership is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in 2001.
The mission of the Revere Beach Partnership is to preserve and enhance America’s first public beach for the enjoyment of all. The partnership is made up of a volunteer board who share 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 16th 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.
