Bestof Logo 2023Since 2000, New Hampshire Magazine has polled and published the picks of its readers and editors in categories that range from best cupcakes to best martini to best antiques shop and everything in between.

Voting in these categories takes place each year, starting in mid-January (currently happening now!). Our online-only ballot is the best way for readers and customers to recognize the best of the best that the Granite State has to offer.

Our annual Readers’ Poll and Editor’s Picks all lead up to the state’s biggest celebration, The Best of NH Party, which is held annually each summer.

2023 Best of NH Ballot

The voting period for 2023 has now closed. Thank you for your time and input! This year, a record 18,400 people cast ballots, so it may take us longer than usual to tally the results.

Winners can expect an email or phone call notification by early April. Please do not reach out asking if you have won. We will reach out and post information as soon as it is available.

2023 Best of NH Party

Save the date. Save your appetite.

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, which will be held this year at Flag Hill Distillery and Winery, located in Lee, NH, on Thursday, June 22, 2023.

This year’s Best of NH celebration returns to its glory days of sampling great food, drink, live music and fun from across the state.  The event will be an elegant tent and garden party at one of our most beautiful local treasures — Flag Hill Distillery and Winery in Lee.

Sign up for our new VIP hour and private sampling opportunity, limited to 100 guests; spend the night in one of 10 tiny homes right ton property; or come just for an evening of sampling and fun. And it’s all to honor the 2023 Best of NH winners and to support our nonprofit beneficiary: The New Hampshire Food Bank.

More information coming soon!
