The Revere Beach Partnership Art Festival Back for the Third Year

To celebrate America’s first public beach, the Revere Beach Partnership will host the Revere Beach Art on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. The day will be filled with fun activities: artists selling their incredible pieces, live music, and Live Art Competition where artists are invited to compete for awards ranging from $500-$1,500 by creating a piece of art work that captures the beauty of Revere Beach.

Revere’s three-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.

This event also gives the chance for Revere High School Art Students to get involved. One deserving student who intends to pursue an education in the field of art will receive a scholarship generously provided by the Revere Beach Partnership and our Sponsors.

This event is free and open to the public. For inquiries and sponsorship opportunities, or if you are an artist who is interested in selling your pieces at this event, please contact Taylor King at taylor@fmpproductions.com.

The Revere Beach Partnership is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed in 2001 to carry forth the heritage of Revere Beach as a nearby retreat for New England families; preserve the beach’s unique historic and natural assets and strengthen the beach as an asset to our community by the development of programs and partnerships that further this goal and the overall well-being of our community; plan and oversee the continued improvement of Revere Beach.
