Beach Street Pop-Up Happening Every Thursday and Friday Through Sept. 29

Special to the Journal

The Revere Beach Partnership and Eastern Equity Partners (EEP Boston) in coordination with the City of Revere is delighted to announce the Beach Street Pop-Up. This weekly beer garden is becoming the go-to destination for rotating local cuisine, local breweries, and casual entertainment.

The pop-up, located at 1485 North Shore Road, opened August 10th and will run through September 29th. The Beach Street Pop-Up takes place every Thursday and Friday through the end of September from 5PM to 9PM. This series promises to be a celebration of community, culture, and creativity, featuring an array of unique craft brews, delicious food options, and engaging activities.

This project is made possible through significant in-kind contributions from property owner and developer EEP Boston as well as a grant through MassDevelopment’s Transformative Development Initiative, which is working with community partners to support a strong local economy in the Shirley Ave neighborhood. One goal of the project is to provide a destination and limited time attraction for visitors and residents alike to spend time in the commercial area supporting local businesses even beyond those featured directly on-site. We also would like to thank Sofis Tech, a local Revere print shop, for donating signage to the Beach Street Pop Up;  Murray’s Tavern, a project partner and local business, for their support with site work and project start-up; and Revere Business Center for donating printed materials and flyers.

During the series, each day will have a different form of entertainment. Some days will be live music, others will feature Boston Red Sox watch parties, and sometimes we’ll even have Music Bingo nights! Each week, local food vendors will be highlighted. Perros Paisas will be at the Beach Street Pop-Up each night of the series, which is being hosted across the street of their soon-to-come brick and mortar location. Local small business Chocolaffee will also be regularly featured in addition to rotating food vendors.

While more events, activities, and partners continue to add to the pop-up weekly, at this time we are looking forward to the following schedule.
