Date: July 23—August 1
Location: A Best of Delaware® winner near you

2020 has definitely been unusual, and although we can’t host a traditional Best of Delaware Party with thousands of guests plus the state’s best restaurants, services and retail establishments sharing what earned them a Best of Delaware win, we couldn’t let this year go by without a celebration of our state’s incredible small businesses.

As Delaware begins to reopen, your local favorites need your support more than ever. That’s why we’ve decided to turn this year’s Best of Delaware event into a week-long celebration and we’re inviting our readers to join in the fun by visiting our winners during Best of Delaware week, July 23 – August 1.

Here are a few things we have planned for Best of Delaware Week:

Virtual Kick Off Party – Enjoy musical entertainment by Judy Sings the Blues, Readers Pick for Best of Delaware Rising Star Band, Downstate; a cooking demonstration from a local celebrity chef; and cocktail demonstrations from two local Best of Delaware winners.

Virtual Photo Booth – Snap a photo at a Best of Delaware winner location, enjoying a Best of Delaware-winning product or service, or of you just having a good time and you could win $500 in gift cards to Best of Delaware-winning restaurants.

Meet the Winners – We’ll be releasing fun video interviews with a handful of Best of Delaware winners on location at their business. Join us as we go behind the scenes with owners, chefs and head brewers at these Best of Delaware locations.

Special Offers – Check out the special offers page for a list of discounts, dining deals and special offers being provided by our winners during Best of Delaware Week.

Don’t worry, a “traditional” Best of Delaware Party is already in the works for next year, and this year’s winners will be invited to participate.
