About Best of NH

Each year in its July issue, New Hampshire Magazine publishes the picks of its readers and editors in categories that range from best cup cakes to best fine dining.

Our online-only ballots are the best way for readers and customers to recognize the best of the best that New Hampshire has to offer.

Our annual Readers' Poll and extensive list of Editor's Picks all lead up to the state's biggest celebration, The Best of NH Party at the Verizon Wireless Arena. This event showcases New Hampshire Magazine Best Of NH-award winners in an evening of food, fun, live music and festivities, this year benefiting the NH Food Bank. This year's event was held on Thursday, June 19, 2014.
