Many of Connecticut's best restaurants, stores, activities, and people are right here in West Hartford. In fact, "We have it all in West Hartford!" is even our tagline. And in a community that has so many diverse offerings, it's about time we have our very own "Best of" contest! That's why we're asking our readers to choose their favorite West Hartford choices in a number of categories.

The best part: If you participate in our Readers' Choice Poll, you will automatically be entered to win four general admission tickets (valued at $240) to our inaugural "Best of West Hartford" event on Thursday, Sept. 10, 2015, at the West Hartford Conference center at Town Hall, 50 Main St. West Hartford.

The finalists were collected via a people’s choice nomination process, and selection of the winners is now underway. We need you to vote for your favorite coffee shop, nursery school, happy hour spot, and lots more. The results of the winners will remain confidential and revealed live at the celebration event on Thursday, September 10, 2015. Tickets will be available for purchase online, so please watch for details.

Thank you to the BOWH sponsors: Bouvier Insurance, Cunningham Supply, Doctors Express Urgent Care, Jeff Hodges Landscape Contractor, Lux Bond & Green, The Mercy Community,, Sheehan-Hilborn-Breen Funeral Home, Town of West Hartford, NBC Connecticut, First Church West Hartford, and St. Brigid School/YMCA.

The event will be held for the winners where they will be formally presented with their award. Every winner will be listed online as well and advertising will be offered – exclusively to winners of 2015. The official Best of West Hartford logo will be made available to 2015 winners for marketing use.  
Consider it a seal of approval from our community.
