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 58 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 $75,000 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 58th annual Beverly Homecoming celebration – my favorite time of year!

Each year, the Beverly Homecoming Committee works year-round to plan a festive, week-long celebration of our wonderful city and those who call it home. With dozens of events to attend throughout the city over the course of this wonderful week, it is nearly impossible to miss out on the unique charm and beauty Beverly has to offer. Whether you are enjoying a fresh lobster at Lynch Park, dancing to local live music at a concert, or taking in the colorful fireworks at Homecoming’s finale, there is so much to do and see in Beverly!

A true reunion event, we look forward to welcoming everyone home to Beverly and I encourage you to attend as many of these events as you can. Connect with old friends, make new friends, and celebrate the summer season in our beautiful seaside city. On behalf of the Board of Directors, it is my honor to yet again welcome you to come together with your community in celebration.

Happy Homecoming!
