Media's 20th anniversary! Enjoy freshly prepared food and drink samples from the best local restaurants, entertainment, live music all night long by Radio City and the best silent auction around! This event sells out each year, so be sure to purchase your tickets early to join the party! Follow our Facebook page for party updates. Proceeds benefit the South River Federation and the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
*Winners will not be announced on stage this year. Photo opportunities will be available at the Winners' Station all night & with James Houck and Veronica Tovey from 7-8pm.
What's New About This Year's Party?This year's Best Of Party will be less of an awards presentation (there will not be on-stage announcements) and more of a party, so bring your dancing shoes and don't miss out on the party of the summer! Photo opportunities will be available at the Winners' Station all night & with Publisher, Veronica Tovey, and Editorial Director, James Houck, from 7-8pm.
