Welcome to the Best of NH
Since 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. 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 extensive list of Editor’s Picks all lead up to the state’s biggest celebration, The Best of NH Party, which is held annually each summer.

2021 Best of NH Party
Join us for an elegant, tented party, at one of our state’s most beautiful historic sites, to celebrate all the best the state has to offer — featuring great food, drink, art, culture, history, tours, and rollicking humor from some of NH’s funniest people. Admission to the party also includes a complimentary tour of Shaker Village before the event.
This year’s event will be outdoors and follow state and CDC guidelines for in-person events. Which means you can count on a safe, socially-distanced event. But it also means we’re limiting ticket sales to just over 300.
Additional information regarding entertainment and food will be available soon!
Saturday, August 21, 2021 from 5:30 – 8 p.m.
