Our Work


For over 20 years, the Revere Beach Partnership and its evolving board of volunteers have been steadfastly committed to the preservation and improvement of Revere Beach, an iconic coastal treasure that holds historical, cultural, and recreational significance to the local community and visitors alike.


Our mission is twofold: to preserve the rich heritage of Revere Beach while simultaneously enhancing it for the enjoyment of all. Revere Beach is not just a stretch of sand and sea-it is a living, breathing ecosystem that thrives on the support of passionate individuals like you.


By joining hands with us, you are playing a vital role in the conservation and promotion of this natural treasure.


Community Engagement

Revere Beach is more than just a beach; it is a place where communities converge, friendships are forged, and memories are made. Through our community events, festivals, and educational programs, we strive to foster a sense of belonging and create opportunities for people from all walks of life to connect with this unique destination.



The infrastructure at Revere Beach has faced years of damaging seas and salty air, requiring ongoing restoration efforts.

We are committed to undertaking and advocating for projects such as renovating the historical pavilions, repairing the William G. Reinstein Bandstand, and preserving architectural elements that reflect the beach’s unique character, By ensuring the longevity and integrity of the beach’s infrastructure, we are preserving its historical charm for years to come.



To accommodate the growing number of visitors and enhance their experience, we have embarked on various infrastructure projects that make Revere Beach an inclusive and enjoyable space for everyone.


Environmental Conservation

We recognize the importance of protecting the fragile ecosystem of Revere Beach. With your support, we have implemented beach cleanup programs, advocate for proper waste management, and engaged in scientific studies geared towards restoration efforts. Together, we can preserve the beach’s ecological balance and create a sustainable environment for generations to come.


The Revere Beach International Sand Sculpting Festival

Now in its 19th year, the Revere Beach Partnership manages this New England Summer Family tradition. Hundreds of thousands of guests attend each year and the event serves as a showcase for beautiful Revere Beach. True to its mission, the Revere Beach Partnership puts on this event free of charge for the enjoyment of all.


In March of 2020, The Revere Beach Partnership launched its Resilient Revere Campaign. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on everyone’s lives and Revere is no exception. As citizens and residents of Revere and avid beach goers, we felt that it was our duty to take action and help wherever we could. In an effort to ease the stress of Revere families as well as provide support to some of Revere’s local beach restaurants.


The Revere Beach Partnership purchased gift cards from several beach restaurants that were distributed to families in need. Our goal was to not only provides delicious meals to families who have hit a rough spot but also help many of the beach businesses. In total, the Revere Beach Partnership raised $4,860 dollars and was able to help more than 50 families and 5 different restaurants in the City of Revere


Over the summer, The Revere Beach Partnership along with its partners the City of Revere and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) announced the launch of RBP’s newest initiative, The Ambassador Program. This program was designed to assist in the effort of allowing beachgoers the ability to enjoy the beach safely and healthily during the COVID-19 Pandemic.


The COVID-19 has had far-reaching implications and has affected every facet of life, most noticeably personal recreation.  As recreation facilities and public beaches are flourishing across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, patrons must utilize these areas in a safe manner in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Revere Beach Partnership along with its partners developed the Ambassador Program to promote and ensure the continued safe use of Revere Beach during the COVID-19 pandemic.


“The Revere Beach Partnership is committed to showcasing America’s First Public Beach.  We are pleased to announce The Ambassador Program which will put considerable efforts into assuring the Revere Beach experience remains a safe and enjoyable place for all despite the uncertain and unnerving times we find ourselves in” said RBP President Jeff Turco.


Funding from community sponsors and partners, including The HYM Investment Group and Save The Harbor Save The Bay, have allowed the RBP to install 16 touchless handwashing stations along Revere Beach for patrons to utilize and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These handwashing stations will come equipped with a scannable QR code that will direct people to a webpage that contains safe use guidelines for the beach. In addition to the implementation of handwashing stations, the Revere Beach Partnership will be conducting weekly beach sanitization efforts along with a mask and children’s sand bucket giveaway. These efforts will take place each Wednesday from July 22nd through August 26th and will be limited to 25 people.


Mayor Brian Arrigo said “There’s no better place to be on a hot summer day than Revere Beach, but this summer is unlike any other and we remain focused on ensuring public health and safety. Working with DCR and Revere Beach Partnership, we’ll continue to take steps to increase awareness of safe beach practices and provide people with the resources they need to keep themselves healthy. We know now that masks are one of our strongest defenses against the spread of COVID-19 and reaching every visitor to the beach with that message, and a mask if they need one, will go a long way. I’m grateful for all the Partnership’s work to make sure people can continue to enjoy our beautiful beach, despite these unprecedented challenges.”

Revere High School, Dean, Retired

I taught Mathematics at Revere High for 20+ years before assuming the position of RHS Dean.  After 7 years serving as Dean, I retired in 2003.  When I retired, I became what is called, a “community activist” and have served on many non-profit organizations since.  One of these organizations was the Revere Beach Partnership.  In addition, I am a Commissioner on the MA Beaches Commission and was named a “Boston Harbor Hero” in 2013. I have lived in the Point of Pines section of Revere since I was 3 and have always loved the beach.  As a child, my favorite playground was the beach, and it continues to be my favorite place.  When a charette to discuss the improvement of Revere Beach (which had deteriorated over the years) was held, I was thrilled to be a participant.  One of the outcomes of this charette was the formation of the Revere Beach Partnership and I was one of many who joined the organization as a community member.  A few years later, I was asked to be a member of the board and I have been on the board ever since. I have been a daily walker along Revere Beach for about 45 years.  These walks have always been a pleasure. I consider myself so fortunate to have “my beach”.
