Welcome to the FINAL VOTING ROUND for the 2018 Best Of Wilmington! Congratulations to all nominees!

The annual Best Of Wilmington gives readers a chance to voice their opinions on the best places to go and cultural events to see and do in the Wilmington area. DREAMS of Wilmington is the beneficiary of encore’s 2018 readers’ choice awards, wherein monies raised at the official awards party—held Feb. 24, 2018, at Brooklyn Arts Center (more on that later)—will benefit the nonprofit.

Voting will remain open until January 16, 2018. Only one ballot per person allowed and a valid email address is required for each ballot. A few paper ballots can be picked up at encore offices in the Cargo District at 1608 Queen St. in the Coworx building.


  1. Voters may not vote for the same business in more than three categories

  2. You must fill in at least 10 categories

  3. To all nominees: While campaigning for votes is allowed, please do not offer special gifts, discounts, or other incentives for votes. Businesses who break this rule will be disqualified at encore’s discretion. Let’s play fair! Good luck! Vote HERE.

    Dr Lanier is probably going to be the most daughter after doctor in the Wilmington area! His model is more suitable for those who have challenges paying for expensive insurance and office visits. Not to mention he will avlctually spend time with you and is on time… what! Yes, I said on time! So you can actually plan your day around your appointment!

    I would appear that a business must advertise with encore to even make the list. You should state that upfront to save people time and effort.

    Hi Thomas,
    Encore’s BEST OF nominations are completely up to readers who take time to nominate their favorite businesses, nonprofits, people, etc., for each category. Encore and its staff have no influence on this list and nominees do not have to be advertisers. Thank you for following Encore and we hope you vote in 2018 and come to the awards show to benefit DREAMS of Wilmington, as well as come back to nominate your favorite picks in next year’s Best Of poll!

    How do you nominate a business and when? I want to nominate “Baker Street Curiosity Shop ” for best antique shop, but don’t know how. Everyone that comes here, says that it’s their favorite shop. We just get over looked.

    Hey Bruce, encore’s Best Of ballot is generated by reader nominations each year and nominations for this year were open in November—that’s the typical time frame annually. We call for nominations via our social media handles, website and in print. We appreciate your interest and hope you vote in 2018 and come to the awards show to benefit DREAMS of Wilmington. Plus, there’s always next year’s Best Of poll!
