Nomination Round - Now through April 11, 2021

What is the Best of Sonoma County?

Best of Sonoma County gives our readers a chance to recognize their favorite people, places, businesses, and things to do. As local restrictions are slowly being lifted, we're looking forward to supporting all businesses and professionals in 2021.

Show your support for Sonoma County businesses as they begin to reopen their doors by nominating them in the annual Best of Sonoma County Readers’ Choice celebration.

The nomination round is important in that only those businesses with significant nominations will advance to the voting round. Make sure to nominate your favorites!

Locals only! We respect and appreciate all of the great businesses that call the North Bay home, but we want to celebrate the ones that were born and built here. Make sure to nominate your favorite independent businesses and keep your votes in Sonoma County.
