About the BOB Awards
For over 20 years, Charlotte magazine has dedicated its May issue to the BEST of the BEST in Charlotte. We call it "The BOBs" for short, and we recognize the city's finest in food and drink, entertainment, shopping, mind and body, and more–almost a hundred winners in all. After the list is published, we host an event to celebrate the winners. Read our list of 2018 BOB Award Winners here.
How do the BOB Awards work?
Winners are picked and written up by staffers, former staffers, and regular contributors of Charlotte magazine. When we pick a winner, not only have we been there, but we’ve been to several other top contenders as well. We are confident in saying that our pick is the best in town. We also ask the Charlotte community to vote for their favorites in a few categories, and voting opens in January each year. Read a full explanation of our BOB Awards process here.
The BOB Awards Party
Our annual BOB Awards Party has become one of the most anticipated event in the city. The BOB Award winners will receive complimentary tickets to the event and tickets will also be available for the public to purchase. During the event, attendees eat, drink, dance and enjoy live entertainment, as we celebrate with the BEST of the BEST in the city. The 2019 event date will be announced soon!
