Best of Oakland!

The Best of Oakland was born with the idea to give readers throughout the East Bay a chance to voice their opinions on their personal “Best” choices for everything Oakland and the East Bay. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.

The voting for Best of Oakland is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in mid March and April with open write-in nominations taking place.

As the nomination period in the first round comes to a close at the end of April, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominees in each category being selectable in this final round of voting during May and the first part of June. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorites from among those that are listed.

The final winners are posted in July

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you cast your vote in March and April and again in May!
