From watercolors and mosaics to pebble art and photography, if you like art, the 2023 Revere Beach Art Festival is a must see this September. Join us in celebrating and supporting local Massachusetts artists during our annual Revere Beach Art Festival!
Not only does this festival, which began in 2015, showcase local and regional talent, but it also raises awareness and appreciation of the natural beauty of Revere’s magnificent shoreline.
What Is the Revere Beach Art Festival?
This year’s annual Art Festival is being held on Saturday, September 23, 2023, along Revere Beach at Waterfront Square, 400 Ocean Ave., next door to 500 Ocean Ave. Fine Line, Dryft, and Mission Beach House.
The day, which begins at 11 am and goes until 5 pm, will be filled with fun activities, artists selling their incredible pieces, live music, and a Live Art Competition.
Local artists will be invited to apply to show and sell their work. In past festival years, many artists have shown work with varying mediums and art pieces including watercolors, paintings, carvings, sculptures, murals, mosaics, sea glass, shell art, charcoal, and caricatures. There is something for everyone to enjoy and marvel over during the festival.
In addition to selling art pieces, artists set up to create their art during the festival giving visitors a chance to see them in action throughout the day. They talk about their craft and their process to the young and old alike, possibly inspiring another generation of local artists.
One of the more favorite parts of the day is the Live Artists Competition where you get to see so many talents at work all at once and experience the full scope of the artist’s process from inception to completion all with a fun competitive twist!
Throughout the day there is live music and performances sure to keep you entertained.
