Historic Revere

Home to America’s very first public beach, and named after the American Revolutionary War patriot Paul Revere, the City remains rich in natural resources and cultural diversity, and has positioned itself for an economic resurgence complete with a dramatic new urban center, Waterfront Square.


Revere Beach’s iconic crescent 3.5-mile stretch of sand and sea is just minutes from Boston and marks the gateway to the North Shore.  The City has an identity all its own — an eclectic mix of old and new that has become an increasing draw for visitors from near and far in recent years. Special events include the National Sand Sculpting Festival, an outdoor summer concert series, a kite festival, summer movies on the beach and a farmers market.   Whether sailboarding on the Atlantic Ocean, or enjoying a quiet oceanfront dinner, the new Revere is ready to provide the perfect venue for an active urban lifestyle.

Revere Beach Annual Events:

Kite Festival: May
Farmers Market: June - October
Sand Sculpting Festival: July
Bocce Tournament: August
