The Revere Beach Sand Sculpting Festival Is Back This Weekend

From Friday, August 6th, until Sunday, August 8th, the International Sand Sculpting Festival will be held on Revere Beach once again. This free festival features large-scale sand sculptures crafted by internationally renowned artists from the U.S. and Canada. The festival will host food trucks, vendors, and other exhibits on site.

While the festival was cancelled last year due to COVID-19, Revere Beach will be hosting a modified version this year in accordance will public safety protocols. Event planners have promised a safe, family friendly atmosphere to see the magnificent sand sculptures up-close.

2021 also happens to be the 125th anniversary of Revere Beach—the oldest public beach in America. Founded in 1896, the beach began when Massachusetts legislators set aside this private land to be a public reservation, and the rest is history.

Hundreds of thousands of guests are expected to attend the festival to see the sculptures, exhibits, and food vendors this year. You definitely don’t want to miss this unique summer festival!
