A volunteer-run 501(c)3 nonprofit organization

Celebrating the Spirit of Beverly, MA

Beverly Homecoming is a summer celebration of the community spirit of Beverly, Massachusetts. It is organized by the Beverly Homecoming Committee, a volunteer-run nonprofit organization. After 59 years, the committee is dedicated to carrying on beloved annual events such as LobsterFest and the Beverly Homecoming Fireworks, as well as to encouraging new ideas and traditions.

As an independent nonprofit funded entirely by generous donations from Beverly residents and our community partners, our goal is to raise at least $95,000 each year. We are so grateful to all those who support Beverly Homecoming each year. Your collective generosity enables us to host these fun and family-friendly events.

The Homecoming Committee welcomes new members who want to get more involved in the local Beverly community. If you would like to volunteer, please contact or call Medley Long at 978-473-4948.

Welcome to the 59th annual Beverly Homecoming celebration – a time of year that holds a special place in my heart!

The Beverly Homecoming Committee dedicates countless hours throughout the year to curate a vibrant, week-long celebration that honors our remarkable city and the people who make it their home. From festive events spread across the city during the week, it’s almost impossible to miss out on the distinctive charm and beauty that Beverly has to offer. Whether you indulge in a delicious lobster feast at Lynch Park, forge connections with neighbors at an Ellis Square cookout, dance to the music of local live bands during a concert, or enjoy the fireworks that mark the grand finale of Homecoming, there’s much to do in Beverly during Homecoming week!

As a true community gathering, we welcome each and every one of you back home to Beverly. I encourage you to attend as many events as you can, reconnect with old friends, form new friendships, and enjoy the summertime spirit of our coastal city.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is my privilege to extend a warm invitation for you to join your community in celebration!

Happy Homecoming!
