2020 Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival – 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.
