4 Events To Enjoy at Revere Beach 

Revere Beach is known globally for the International Sand Sculpting Contest held every summer. But did you know that there are many events that run throughout the year on our beloved three-mile crescent stretch of sand? From fall Pumpkin Races to beer gardens and from movie nights to Art and Kite Festivals, Revere Beach is always hosting something fun and exciting for adults and children alike. 

Let’s take a look at four events you won’t want to miss this year as Revere gears up once again to host hundreds of thousands of visitors to our Kite Festival in May, the International Sand Sculpting Competition in July, the Arts Festival in September and the Pumpkin Dash in October. 

Revere Beach Kite Festival 

Held every spring on Revere Beach, the Kite Festival is a long-awaited event as so many visitors and residents are anxious to get outdoors and enjoy the pleasant New England spring weather once again. 

Along with celebrating the spring weather, the Kite Festival offers a great time for families and children. In addition to viewing the prowess and spectacular kites of professional kite flyers, young adults and children will have the opportunity to build, decorate and fly their own kites. They will also be able to take part in family-friendly activities on the beach and along the boardwalk. 

International Sand Sculpting Competition 

This must-attend event on Revere Beach is known the world round. 

Join us this July for four days of celebrating the skills of sand sculptors from around the world who craft their sculptures on America’s First Public Beach. Along with beautiful sand sculptures, visitors will enjoy food trucks, live music, entertainment and a Saturday Night Fireworks Extravaganza!

The Revere Beach Arts Festival 

Even as summer fades to fall, Revere Beach continues its offerings with the Revere Beach Arts Festival every September. During this special event, visitors will have a chance to enjoy watching artists create their items, shop the stalls of artists selling their one-of-a-kind pieces, and watch a live Art Competition. 

As always there will be activities for children and adults alike as you enjoy the beach and the wide assortment of foods and entertainment available in our region. 

The 5K Pumpkin Dash and Kids Fun Run 

Held every fall in October, the Revere Beach 5K Pumpkin Dash and Kids Fun Run is a staple for so many families in and around Revere. 

Join in the fun by wearing your favorite Halloween costume and taking part in one of the runs on the beach. During the event, there will be pumpkin decorating, food vendors and live music to enjoy. For those over 21, a Beer Garden will be available for after-the-run sustenance. 

Revere Beach is always doing something and hosting activities for children and visitors. In addition to these four events, don’t miss the Summer Movie Nights and Music Series on the beach where you can enjoy a free movie and popcorn or live music under the stars with your family as you are lulled by the lapping waves along the shore. 

Whether you attend all four or visit us only once this year, Revere Beach and the entire community welcome you to our beloved beach as we celebrate our community throughout the year.
