This year’s Best of Hudson Valley marks the 30th year we have celebrated all of the outstanding offerings in the region. Lucky for us we never run dry of winners, as the Valley is thriving. This year’s list is bigger than ever with 288 winners, covering everything from Artisan Bread to Yoga Studios. (Next year we’ll come up with a Z category.) How did we choose? The Editors’ picks are a year-round process. In fact we are already gathering ideas for 2017. As for the Readers’ picks, that process begins in February, when our online ballot goes live. Thankfully, you’re not shy about sharing your opinions, as more than 14,000 ballots were cast during this year’s voting period. Join us as we honor the winners in celebration at our annual Best of Hudson Valley Party on October 13, at The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel.
