Vote for your favorite Central Ohio businesses

Where is your family’s go-to place for dinner? What’s the best bookstore for kids? Which festival is your favorite? We want to know!

Voting is now open for the 2017 Columbus Parent Family Faves annual reader poll. We’re seeking your opinions on the best family-friendly businesses, dining, activities and events in Central Ohio.

This year’s survey has 35 categories, all of which have multiple nominees. Aside from two new categories (Best Kids Menu and Best Gymnastics Instruction), these nominees earned at least 5 percent of the vote in last year’s survey. Each question also has a write-in option if your favorite isn’t listed.

Voting closes at noon July 6. There is a limit of one ballot per person.


Nominees (or those who want to launch a write-in campaign) can download Family Faves marketing materials at

Winners (as well as runners-up and honorable mentions) will be revealed in our September issue.
