Revere Beach Kite Festival
Kelly’s Roast Beef, Revere Beach
This event was postponed

On May 9th, 2020, we will be hosting our 6th Annual Kite Festival on Revere Beach. This is our way of kicking off beach season with fun for the whole family! Children will have the opportunity to build, decorate and fly their own kites. The event also features professional kite-flyers, live music, and other family-friendly activities! This event brings in people of all ages to enjoy a beautiful Spring day on the beach and have some family fun!  We are excited to be back on the beach for the season and we want you to join us!

International Sand Sculpting Festival
Revere Beach, Revere, MA
Canceled!!

The Revere Beach Partnership (RBP) and its co-hosts, the City of Revere and Commonwealth’s Department of Conservation and Recreation, looked forward to hosting their marque event this year, the 17th annual International Sand Sculpting Festival (ISSF). With great disappointment, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the festival for this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand the impact that not having this event will have on the community, however, we did not feel that any modifications to this event that traditionally draws over one million people, could be held in any way that was consistent with the current health safety guidelines of the CDC.

We know that families from across New England and from around the globe look forward to attending the event each year. Although we are disappointed that we will have to wait until 2021 to welcome our international master sculptors back to Revere Beach, we look forward to seeing you all at the event next year.

In the meantime, the Revere Beach Partnership has shifted all its attention to finding ways to promote and enhance safe and healthy recreation along Revere Beach this summer. We hope to engage with our corporate partners in this effort as we implement several programs over the coming months.
