The Best Party of the Year…A Retrospective

Jun 06, 2017 12:38PM ● By James Houck
Continuing our theme of revisiting articles and memories of our publications’ past 20 years (amazing right?!), we offer a photo retrospective of one of our, if not the, favorite events of the year…the Best Of Party. This spectacular event (yes, we’re editorializing here) began in 2004 and has gotten only better and better in the years since. It’s an annual celebration of the year’s Best Of winners, all chosen by you, our readers! It truly is our party.

The themes for the parties over the years have been homerun hits. We, seemingly, have done it all: the Roaring ’20s, 007, The Oscars, A Night in Paris, and White Hot Night to name a few. For the past couple years, we’ve gone nautical and the theme has stuck for 2017. Join the fun on June 15th at Loews Annapolis Hotel, as the tradition of celebrating our communities and the businesses that serve them continues. Tickets for 2017's Best Of Party are available online here.

Please take a look at the party photos throughout the years, and if you spot yourself or a friend, please let us know and share your Best Of Party memories by emailing  include “Party Memory” in the subject line.

Now feast your eyes on this smorgasbord of party photos!
