About

Owned and operated by the DeLorenzo family, Danversport started as a vision more than 50 years ago when Joseph DeLorenzo imagined creating a special place for the community to celebrate life’s joyous occasions. He and his wife Barbara eventually purchased this beautiful parcel of land and set out to build a “big band” style dance hall and marina. In 1970, they opened the doors to Danversport and it quickly became a destination location for dinner, dancing and live music. Over the years, Danversport has flourished and grown to accommodate weddings and special events of all sizes.

We’re now in the third generation of the DeLorenzo family, and we’re just as passionate as Joseph was about providing outstanding experiences in an incredible setting. We’re also excited about the steps we’re taking to improve the business and support our community through the use of solar renewable energy, recycling and vegetable farming.

Most of all, we’re proud to be able to continue helping you celebrate and create wonderful memories. We hope you enjoy Danversport! Thank you for your patronage.
