Beverly Homecoming Committee

The Beverly Homecoming Committee is a working board that meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Beverly Public Library. Our committee holds decades of homecoming experience as well as the fresh perspective of new members. This committee is welcome to new members and new ideas about homecoming. Our goal is to carry on this 55 year old tradition of raising Beverly’s spirits by showcasing all that Beverly has to offer and hosting a fireworks celebration.

As an independent non-profit funded entirely by generous donations our goal is to raise about $20,000 each year in to support this annual event. We are so grateful to you, local businesses and organizations that support homecoming each year. Because of our collective effort we host ten days of community events culminating in an exciting fireworks display launched from Mackerel Cove.

The Homecoming Committee welcomes new members who want to help uphold these traditions and create new traditions based on Beverly’s evolving interests and assets. Please do contact us if you would like to volunteer for homecoming or join our committee at or call Medley Long at 978-473-4948.

And We’re Back!! 
It is with much excitement that I welcome you back to our community’s beloved Beverly Homecoming celebration.

While we were not able to gather for public events last year due to the pandemic, you may have noticed that Beverly’s spirit was not dampened, as evidenced by the first-ever Beverly PorchFest Weekend, traveling bandwagon, and yard signs honoring those among us who continued doing their essential jobs during a time when most of us were instructed to stay at home. When the going got tough, Beverly residents repeatedly

demonstrated what a resilient and compassionate community looks like! 

This year, we are back!

Homecoming is a time for all of us to gather and reflect on this wonderful city we call home. With events to attend throughout the city over the course of this festive week, it is impossible to miss out on the wonder and beauty Beverly has to offer – whether you are breaking a sweat at Bev FitFest, enjoying a fresh lobster roll at Lynch Park for LobsterFest, enjoying an outdoor concert or movie, or taking in the colorful fireworks on the night of Sunday, August 8.

There is so much to explore during the week of Homecoming, and I encourage you to attend as many of these events as you can. On behalf of the board members and volunteers, who tirelessly plan year ‘round for this celebration, and particularly after a difficult and isolating year, it is my honor to welcome you to come together with your neighbors in celebration of our special city by the sea!
