Choose from the finalists for the best of everything in Charlotte in our annual awards competition.

The 2021 Best in the Nest finalists were nominated during our nomination round that ran from September 1 through September 30. In the final round, you get to vote for your favorites from each category with up to five options for voting. The choices are laid out as multiple choice questions. All nominations were made by our readers and were only edited for proper spelling of each business/person.


In our annual Best in the Nest issue, we look back at some of the most important stories, the biggest impacts, biggest failures and all around hilarity of the past year. You can learn all about last year’s winners in our 2020 Best in the Nest awards.

It's time for the Final Round

How to vote in the final voting round


Voting is easy in the final voting round. Scroll through our categories of Food & Drink, Arts & Entertainment, City Life, Consumer Culture, and Nightlife to choose from a multiple choice selection of your favorites for the best of each category. You do not need to respond to each and every option, but we recommend you do so in order to highlight the folks you think deserve a nod and have your voice heard. 


Voting in the final round is limited to one session per valid email address to compensate for ballot stuffing. Be on the lookout for the Best in the Nest issue that will be hitting the streets on December 1 to check out all of the winners!
