About this Event

THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED UNTIL May 19th, 2021....Are you Team Beverly or Team Marblehead?  Where is the birthplace of the United States Navy? Two local towns that have argued with each other for years over this question. Help us settle the Great Debate once and for all!

Show your town pride--and then decide! Tickets are $18 and will include either a Beverly or Marblehead commemorative pin.
